Most of all, it offers the opportunity to plunge feet-first into one of the most vibrant, adventurous communities on earth.

Graduate students, as well as other members of the MIT community, are welcome to participate in MIT's Sublicensing Program to rent or "sublicense" an apartment from an existing resident of MIT Graduate Housing during the summer.  Restrictions apply.  Please visit the Sublicensing Program webpage on the Housing & Residential Services website for more information, including process dates and eligibility details.     

While all house dining halls are closed for the summer, MIT Dining oversees several retail venues located on campus that are open for operations during summer 2023 and are excited to serve members of the MIT community and guests. These retail locations include Pacific Street Cafe (NW86), which accepts cash, TechCASH, and credit or debit cards.  Due to interior renovations to the Stratton Student Center (W20), please note that retail dining locations, such as Dunkin', are temporarily unavailable during the summer. 

Campus food providers are also available to assist with summer catering needs. To find an available vendor, visit the MIT Dining website.
