🛏 Dorms - MIT
Disclaimer: I have no first-hand experience of MIT dorms. Most MIT first-years live in one of 11 houses on campus. You pick which dorms you want to live in, and each have different cultures. This is a (growing) collection of information I’ve found while searching for which dorms I want to live in. It’s intended to remind me of what I’ve found and potentially help other people start researching dorms. However, don’t use this on it’s own and try talk to actual students in dorms.
If anything I’ve written is incorrecct or you have more info feel free to contact me or edit the source at: r-bt.com Github repo

- Note McCormick as a female-only dorm is not included
- Cook for myself or meal plan?: Cook for myself
- East vs West Campus?
- Do I want a roommate?
- Big dorm or small dorm?
- Unified Culture or Floor culture?
- Do I want a cat in my dorm? Yes Don’t know why, but cats / dogs always make me smile
Seems like there is a East / West Campus divide in terms of dorm cultures
Uhhh, I can’t make decisions anymore (~ Richard after spending two days to only decide I want to cook for myself)
