GSC Resolutions

Resolution 52gsc.11.2: “Termination of the Currently Planned Residence Hall Project”;

We, the representative body of MIT graduate students, support the termination of the currently proposed planning project on the grounds that it does not meet the needs of the graduate student body, has been planned without any substantial student or faculty input and without duly regarding the previously passed resolutions 52gsc.10.1, 52gsc.10.3, and 52gsc.10.4, and that it is financially unsound. At the same time, we affirm our strong support for the increase of graduate housing options in a manner that does address the diverse needs of the graduate student body in a fiscally responsible manner. We furthermore insist that MIT begin the planning process anew at a later date in a manner that allows for appropriate student and faculty input throughout the process.

Resolution 52gsc.11.3: “Modification of the Currently Planned Residence Hall Project”;

If MIT adopts revisions to the currently proposed residence hall, such as converting a substantial number of living rooms to bedrooms in a manner that allows for increased occupancy, lower rents, and more common space
... we, the representative body of MIT graduate students, would support the construction of such a residence hall.
