Chill with WILG!

Formal Rush for the Spring 2023 semester has ended. If you were unable to attend our events but are interested in getting to know WILG this semester, please send a message to!

Our rush process happens twice a year at the start of each semester. We have a ton of fun events lined up this semester, including dinners (always with vegetarian options), game nights, comedy nights, painting, baking, and much more! We're an extremely supportive community that thrives on interactions and discussion, and we'd be more than happy to talk to you (relatively) ad infinitum about living with us. Although we recruit non-binary and women-identifying undergraduates (including both freshmen and upperclassmen), all genders are welcome at our events.

If you happened to miss our formal rush period, please reach out to and let us know you're interested! To receive updates on rush events, add yourself to the Moira list (linked) if you're an MIT community member with MIT certificates; if not (or if you'd rather be added by us), email

WILG is located at 355 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, near the Toscanini's and New City Microcreamery.
