This referral program does not apply to undergraduate residents of graduate housing or any sublicensing arrangements by graduate residents for their own housing assignments.

The following terms and conditions apply, and must be met for BOTH the current resident and the new incoming resident to be eligible for rental credits:

The current resident must:

  • be a resident of MIT housing who has signed a 2024-2025 MIT graduate housing license agreement; 
  • occupy their graduate housing assignment at the time the rent credit is applied in December 2024;
  • comply with all the terms of their housing license agreement through the end of the minimum eligibility stay required; and
  • submit a referral form by the program deadline (please submit a form for each person you refer.)

The new incoming resident must:

  • be eligible to live in graduate housing, including:
    • full-time, degree-seeking MIT graduate student who is eligible to register for courses during Fall 2024; OR
    • an approved visitor at the Institute, including cross-registered students, researchers, and post-docs;
  • be a new incoming resident who has a signed license agreement for 2024-2025;
