Freshman Advising: Residence-Based Advising

All freshmen assigned to live in Maseeh Hall, McCormick Hall, Next House, Chocolate City, and Spanish House are advised through the Residence Based Advising Program (RBA), which supports your transition to living and learning at MIT by providing academic resources within the residential community.

Before entering the Freshman Housing Lottery, please be sure to first read all the information in this RBA section to learn how your housing decision will affect your options for freshman advising.
