Prospective Students

Boston and the Hardard Bridge

Welcome to MIT Hillel!

Whether you only want to stop by briefly to see what Hillel has to offer, or you would like us to arrange a host and meals, we are happy to help you plan your visit so you can learn about general life and Jewish life at MIT.

Most MIT undergraduate students live in campus dormitories or in MIT independent living groups. There are kosher living groups in several dormitories and one Jewish residential fraternity. Graduate students live both on and off campus. Also, Hillel offers Shabbat and holiday meals that are always kosher.

If you are interested in MIT, we encourage you to visit! Experience life in the dormitories; visit an array of different classes/labs; take a campus tour; socialize with students; visit the Hillel to learn about Jewish life on campus. Hillel can arrange for prospective students to stay with a Jewish student whose interests and/or observance are similar.

When MIT sponsors "Campus Preview Weekend" in early April, Hillel sponsors several programs and meals. If you would like a Jewish host during your CPW visit, contact Hillel. If you are unable to come to CPW, Hillel is pleased to host accepted students on other dates during February, March, and April.

To make arrangements please e-mail or call us at (617)253-2982. If you keep kosher, ask about the current schedule and reservations for Shabbat meals, and weekday kosher meals.
