Segue Students Welcome

Many of your readers who are juniors will have heard about the Senior Segue program in which an MIT junior now living in undergraduate housing can apply to live in one of the graduate dorms next year. These students will be guaranteed graduate housing for the year after next if they become MIT graduate students. In addition, they will only pay the rental levels of comparable undergraduate housing during their upcoming senior year even though they will be living in much more expensive graduate residences. The major advantage of this program to the participating students is that they will not have to face the likely prospect of finding housing off campus during their first year of graduate school. From MIT’s perspective, Senior Segue is a way to alleviate the serious crowding problems that have persisted in the undergraduate residences.

As the housemasters of the graduate residences, we will welcome the group of seniors who will be coming to live in our respective communities. Our intention is to treat these students as full members of our dormitories’ communities. We think this will provide the participating seniors with a chance to experience a different, and in many ways more diverse, community at the end of their undergraduate education and to live in an environment with older and more professionally advanced students. We urge all of the current juniors to consider participating in this new housing opportunity.


The Graduate Housemasters:
Larry Anderson and Dawn Anderson, Tang Hall
Keith and Brenda Hampton, Sidney & Pacific
Steve and Lori Lerman, 224 Albany St.
Roger and Dorothy Mark, Sidney and Pacific
Anne and Bill McCants, Green Hall
Terry and Ann Orlando, Ashdown Hall
