Summer Housing @ WILG


May 23 UPDATE: After some cancellations, we have 2 singles and multiple spaces left in Doubles and Triple+ rooms. We strongly encourage applicants to remain open to Double and Triple+ room arrangements as the likelihood of being placed in those rooms is much higher.

Located conveniently between Central Square and Kendall Square, WILG offers quick access to the best of Cambridge and Boston. The 1 Bus stops directly in front of the house. We have easy access to grocery stores, restaurants, and MIT and Harvard campuses.

WILG has many amenities: a full commercial kitchen, a secondary kitchen on the fourth floor, ample appliances and dishware, wifi, free laundry, a bike storage room, and an exercise room.

During the summer, WILG is open to people of all sexes and genders and non-MIT students as well. Join us!


For summer 2023, we will offer housing from Monday, June 5th to Saturday, August 26th.


Room Price (Per Person)
Triple $2800
Double $2950
Walk-through Double* $3200
Single $3400


*A walk-through Double is a set of two single rooms connected by a door; the person in the back room has to walk through the front room. Living in one of these is like having roommates, but you still get your own space.

Subletting is not allowed. These rates cannot be prorated unless another boarder has complementary summer plans and the arrangement is discussed with the summer housing chair in advance.


First, fill out an application.

Then, we’ll set up a tour of the house or an online interview if you’re not in the Boston area.

Decisions will be given on a rolling basis until the house is full.


Each person living at WILG will do a house and kitchen job each week (approx 1 hour each) to help keep the house clean and nice to live in. Each missed job results in a fine of up to $20.

Each person is required to sign a summer housing contract and submit a summer housing deposit ($500) to secure their spot.

We cannot guarantee parking spaces, but you can apply for an MIT parking permit.
