We have easy access to grocery stores, restaurants, and MIT and Harvard campuses.

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


For summer 2024, we will offer housing from Sunday, June 2nd to Saturday, August 24th.


These prices are for the full term: 06/02 - 08/24.

Room Price (Per Person)
Walk-through Triple* $2900
Double $3000
Walk-through Double* $3300
Single $3600

*A walk-through room is a set of two rooms connected by a door and shared by 2 or 3 people; to access the back room one must walk through the front room. The bed arrangement for these rooms is left up to the residents but a common set up is one bed in the front room and one (or two for a walk-through triple) in the back room. Another common arrangement is all beds in the back room and desks in 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 invite you to a virtual info session that will include a virtual tour of the house and a review of the house policies. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have then. Attending an info session is required to be considered.

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. In addition to these jobs, each person is required to complete 3 bathroom cleanings over the course of the summer. Each missed job results in a fine of up to $15.

Each resident is required to sign a summer housing contract and submit a summer housing deposit ($500) to secure their spot. On top of the summer rate, an additional $300 security deposit is required upon move-in. The security deposit will be returned to the resident upon move-out minus any fines the resident has accrued from missed jobs. Additional fines will be taken from the security deposit if the resident's room and furniture is not left in good condition.

We have a limited number of parking spaces behind our building. Depending on requests, we may be able to grant permanent parking spaces for the summer but they are typically left open for temporary resident parking. You can also apply for an MIT parking permit.
