Housing Office Bedbug Protocol
Bedbugs are making a fast come back in the United States and are the new nuisance we will be dealing with in the near future. Bedbugs are brought in on clothing, suitcases and used furniture, to name a few. They live in mattresses and dark crevices in furniture and walls. They bite at night while you are sleeping. Bedbugs are not known to carry disease and can not hurt you. Some people do not even realize they have them while others develop rashes around the bite that is very noticeable.
Living in the MIT community.
As a member of the MIT community, we expect you to respect the rights and property of fellow residents and help minimize wear and tear on the facilities and furnishings. Most issues involving conduct in your residence will be resolved through the self-governing system of student judicial committees and the residence staff. Serious infractions of MIT policies and procedures, however, may result in sanctions or even suspension from MIT housing at the discretion of the Dean of Student Life’s Office or the Committee on Discipline.
The MIT Housing Office: What we do
Our role at the Housing Office is to put 6,000 students to bed every night. And while a good night’s sleep is important—especially to MIT students—it’s the waking lives of our residential communities that present us with our greatest opportunities.
