Families

Welcome to the MIT community

As soon as your student gets their admission letter to MIT, you become part of our community as well. Your students are outstanding people, and they couldn’t have gotten here without your love and support.

Choosing a college is an important decision, so we want to provide some more information to help you and your family with this decision. We created this space so that you can find more on everything from campus housing to financing an MIT education, to supporting your MIT student through their first year.

I feel incredibly lucky every day to be part of such an amazing and talented community.

You do not have to hide the things about you that make you the weird kid in the room.

One thing I really like about MIT is that there is a HASS requirement.

Over the past few years I've gotten very involved in the Boston startup ecosystem.
