May 24, 2013Deadline to accept the Graduate Housing Fall Allocation Assignment.
May 31, 20132nd round Graduate Housing Fall Allocation results available. 5PM.
You can submit an application to move to another room only during a specified time period.
Room-to-room transfer requests can be submitted beginning August 15, 2012
- If you wish to change rooms within your residence hall, complete the transfer application.
- You will be added to the waiting list and will be offered a room-to-room transfer via email if a room becomes available.
- If you are a resident of Ashdown House and you wish to make a room-to-room transfer within Ashdown House, sign up for the next Ashdown In-House Room Assignments Lottery. Assignments are based on seniority points earned through length of residency and service as an officer. Contact the Ashdown House Executive Committee to find out the dates of the next lottery.
- If you are a resident of the Warehouse, you may work with your housemasters to request a room-to-room transfer.
- If you are a resident of Eastgate or Westgate, see information on family housing transfers.
- If you are a resident of Sidney Pacific, all residents who transfer will be charged a $100 fee to help offset the cost of turning over the apartment.
- Every November, single students who want to transfer to a different residence hall may apply to the November Transfer Allocation.
- Record your preferences on the November Transfer Allocation application.
- Check the Dates & Deadlines page to find out when the next building-to-building transfer process is scheduled.
- Current residents who will be fully registered MIT graduate students are eligible to participate. Visitors and undergraduate residents are not eligible for building-to-building transfers.
- The ability to transfer depends on vacancies and the number of students who enter the transfer lottery. The more students who enter, the better your chances that we will be able to find a transfer for you.
- If your transfer request is not successful, your assignment will remain as it was before you submitted your application to transfer.
You don’t want to wait to transfer
If you do not want to wait for the next scheduled transfer period, your only options are to terminate your assignment and enter the next scheduled housing allocation process or put your name on the Graduate Housing Waiting List. Terminating your assignment is risky because
- you may not be able to get another on-campus housing assignment
- if you are not able to get another assignment, you will have to find housing off campus
- by forfeiting your on-campus housing assignment, you also forfeit any seniority you have in the system and must start over at the beginning of the process
Because the number of family housing units is limited, the transfer policy for family housing is more complicated. Get details.
