Guest, Program & MIT Affiliate Housing

IMPORTANT: Guest and group housing applications are now closed for summer 2016. We are unable to provide housing for any guests who are not affiliated with, or sponsored by, MIT.

MIT offers short-term summer housing (mid-June through early August) on campus for eligible single guests, conference visitors, and MIT affiliates.

Visitors are eligible to live on campus during this period if they belong to one of the following groups:

Department-sponsored groups and programs—groups brought to campus by a sponsoring MIT department, lab, or center.

Department-sponsored guests—lecturers, researchers, consultants, or academic visitors invited to campus by an MIT department.

Don’t fall into either of those categories? Check below:

Undergraduate summer housing

Wellesley undergraduate students
Wellesley undergraduate students who will be registered for a class, participating in a UROP, working with a department, or doing paid research, are eligible for undergraduate student housing. Before registering for housing, you must have an active MIT ID number.

Once you have an MIT ID number and have completed the process with the Registrar's office, please email
