On-Campus Housing Request Deadline: August 1, 2012

Housing Requests and Deadlines
On-campus housing may only be requested by participants who have registered and paid for the workshop. All applications for housing must be made in advance of the workshop. Housing requests cannot be processed on-site. Applications for housing will be accepted until Wednesday, August 1, 2012 or sooner if the limited number of rooms available is sold out. Due to the large number of on-campus housing applications, early registration is recommended.

Payment for accommodations must be made at the time of reservation; applications submitted without payment will not be processed. Payments may be made via credit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express or Discover); or check in US dollars, drawn on a US bank.

Housing request forms are processed in the order in which they are received. All changes must be submitted in writing.

Guests will receive a written confirmation of accommodations which will include the address, telephone number and location of their residence hall assignment. This confirmation must be presented to the desk staff upon arrival. MIT retains the right to refuse entry to guests without proper identification.

All correspondence regarding your reservation should be directed to the MIT Conference Services Office at conferences-www@mit.edu.
