Student Accommodation
There are currently 3,370 students living on campus. More than 1,900 graduate students live in five dormitories on the MIT campus – Ashdown House, Edgerton House, Sidney-Pacific, Tang Hall and Warehou.

Most graduate students live on campus in one of the 11 MIT dormitories or in the buildings of one of 39 dormitories: the official Greek communities, women’s communities and self-organized, living groups. All freshmen should live in one of the hostels of the institute itself – with the exception of those who come to study from home. Each dormitory has a head – as a rule, it is a senior teacher of a faculty or a graduate student.

Students can stay on campus after the first year of study or move to a community, women’s community, or cohabitation group.

The university also offers family hostels: in two buildings of the residential complex, Westgate and Eastgate, there are more than 400 bachelors, masters and graduate students with families.

Student career development
Student Financial Services (SFS) staff work with students and employers at MIT and beyond. They compile lists of available student vacancies, including paid public service jobs.

Students find suitable employment options, they are assisted in filling out the documents necessary for applying for a job and fulfilling other requirements. The service also draws up supporting documents for the employment of former MIT students during their studies to be provided to potential employers.
