McCormick Hall

In the late 1950s legendary alumna Katherine Dexter McCormick decided MIT needed to support more women. As female enrollment was limited to 50 by a lack of suitable housing, the scholar and feminist firebrand donated the funds for the all-woman hall that bears her name today. While all other MIT residences (not including independent living groups) are co-ed, most have single-sex living areas. Ms. McCormick, incidentally, would be happy to know that today nearly 40 percent of undergrads are women.
