MIT Professional Education participants can arrange to stay at hotels or bed and breakfasts near campus or, during the summer, in a dormitory on campus. Long-term housing options are also available. Most participants stay in hotels within walking distance of campus. Housing is not included in tuition.

Please contact all hotels directly for reservations and information on room availability.

We do not recommend booking your hotel reservations through third-party booking agents. Please book with the following hotels directly and ask for the MIT rate. Hotels only block off a certain amount of rooms for the MIT rate, so please call early to make sure you get a room at the discounted rate. In most cases, you will need to call the hotel to receive the MIT rate. You will not be able to make your reservation online.

Consult the MIT online map to locate campus buildings, accessibility information, dining facilities, transportation stops, and local hotels. Distance to MIT is measured from the main entrance of MIT: 77 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 02139.

Dormitory Housing

Most Short Programs participants choose to stay in local hotels. Less expensive, basic housing is also available in June, July, and August in dormitories on campus.

Dormitory Conditions

Rooms have a single (twin-sized) bed. Guests are provided with sheets and a blanket, a dresser, a closet, and a desk. Bathrooms are coed and are shared with both students and other professionals and are located outside the room. Each floor also has one small private bathroom, also located outside the room. The non-smoking, co-ed building offers a lounge/common area, self-service laundry room, and limited linen service (sheets changed weekly; towels daily).

*Please note that dormitory housing does not have air conditioning. Summers in Boston/Cambridge can be quite humid so please keep this in mind when considering staying at the MIT dorm.

Dorm rooms do not have room service, room televisions or radios, or kitchen facilities. Please note that telephones are not available in individual rooms; hallway phones are for emergencies and local calls only. The building is locked, but staff are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The dorm rooms offer free wireless internet access. During registration you will be provided with information regarding how to access the MIT wireless system.

Reservations

Room reservations are run by MIT Conference Services. To make, alter, or cancel a reservation, please go to the Online Application. Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis and subject to room availability. Dormitory reservations must be received at least three weeks in advance of your intended arrival date. Requests made less than three weeks before arrival cannot be accommodated. Participants staying in dormitories must abide by dormitory policies (pdf) and agree that they are responsible for any costs incurred during their stay.

Dormitory housing is only available between July 6 and August 8. Dormitory housing will not be available in June. Requested arrival and departure dates must match the dates of your Short Programs course, with additional 1-2 days allowed for travel. Checkout is 11:00 am on the final day of the course.

Occupants

Only participants in courses offered by MIT Professional Education are allowed to reserve dormitory rooms through our office. We are unable to accommodate requests to house family members or any other non-participant. Pets are not allowed in the dormitory.

Payment

Program fees must be received by MIT Professional Education before dormitory reservations will be processed.

Rates for 2020

$86 per night plus a $10 access card charge

Additional Information

For any further questions regarding dormitory accommodations, please contact MIT Conference Services.

Long-Term Housing

Furnished Quarters offers a selection of fully-furnished apartments with many amenities near the MIT campus (as well as convenient locations in Boston) to visitors staying for seven or more days. Submit a reservation request form or email education@furnishedquarters.com for more information.
