The UAAP will mail a letter to you from Undergraduate Housing Office explaining the housing selection process. You will then have the opportunity to fill out a Housing Request Form that needs to be submitted in July.
Transfer students have the option of selecting MIT housing or off-campus housing. There are great advantages to both living opportunities, and this page will help you understand your choices.
Boston, Cambridge, and surrounding communities are rich with diversity, intellectual and cultural opportunities. Check out the MIT Off-Campus Housing website to find information on short-term housing, apartments, realtors rental fees, leases, etc. Access to this site requires valid MIT web certificates.
NOTE: housing availability in the city of Boston and surrounding areas is limited, so please do not wait until you arrive to begin your search. If you prefer off-campus housing, we encourage you to begin your search ASAP.
If you have any questions about off-campus housing, please contact the Off-Campus Housing Office.
