*McCormick and Next House have Residence-based advising, which requires freshmen to stay in their assigned dormitories.

**There is a difference in the sum of the number of first preference requests for each dormitory and number of students entering the lottery for each dormitory, which is a discrepancy in the data as received from the Housing Office.

‡Since arriving on campus, two freshmen have left MIT, leaving the current total at 996.
