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.
Here at MIT, the place you live is not just where you stash your stuff. Every undergraduate and graduate residence has its own distinct culture, perspective, and lifestyle. And each contributes as much to the growth of the students who live there as their academic experiences do.
Those of us who work in the Housing Office are key members of these communities, working collaboratively with students and house governments to make sure they have the infrastructure and resources they need to realize their intellectual and personal goals. Together, we make these lively communities safe, supportive, inspiring, and unique in university residential life.
