MIT Undergraduate Dormitories
Undergraduate dormitories at MIT. Students are required to live in one of the eleven dormitories their first year. Generally, they select a temporary dorm by lottery over the summer, then confirm their placement in the fall or enter the housing adjustment lottery to move into a dorm they prefer. The exception is McCormick Hall, which maintains a Residence-Based Advising program that typically does not allow students to move out of McCormick for their first year.
