On a typical evening at ET, you can find us playing board games, doing parkour in the park across the street, solving puzzles, making puns and spoonerisms, playing video games, enjoying a home-cooked meal, and tinkering with our latest projects, all while engaging in lively chatter about everything from linguistics to pasta shapes.

ET is an independent living group of roughly 20 people of all genders living in Brookline, across the river from MIT. We're known for our friendliness, quirky sense of humor, and fondness for baby ducks. We’re far enough from MIT to escape the bustle and stress of campus, but close enough that our members are active in many student groups and campus communities. We often host social events like weekly study breaks and parties, all of which are alcohol-free.

We live in a big yellow house in Brookline, surrounded by tree-filled parks and a quiet residential community. The best way to learn about us is to come visit, but this site should give you a pretty good idea of what we're about.
