TEST Student Life

You’ll choose where you live with people you like.

Discover your MIT

At MIT, learning is about more than what is taught in the classroom—it’s about living here, choosing your own opportunities, and discovering who you are. With over 4,500 undergraduate students and hundreds of clubs, you’ll never run out of things to do here. Love chocolate? Join the student-run Laboratory for Chocolate Science. Or maybe you enjoy singing a capella? Check out one of MIT’s many a capella groups, like the Logarhythms. There is plenty for you to explore!

Help and Support

Everyone knows being an MIT student can sometimes feel like drinking from a fire hose, but there are tons of resources and people who will help you on your journey. From academic deans and professors to upperclass mentors and peers, MIT’s collaborative culture fosters a support network that will help you be successful. Check out some of MIT’s many resources!
