REX. It's your chance to explore.

Welcome to the REX website for the MIT class of 2019!

REX (Residence Exploration) is a fun time filled with tons of events that will help you get to know the different residential communities at MIT. For those of you who have already decided where you're going to live, REX is a great opportunity to find out about the different parts of campus that you otherwise might not get to experience. For the rest of you, REX is the perfect time to explore MIT's dorms and pick the place whose culture and residents feel like the best fit for you. Most of all, REX is a time to enjoy yourself and to meet as many people as possible, freshmen and upperclassmen, and to get a feel for what MIT has to offer socially.
