Graduate Junction Licensing Center opens at MIT

The Graduate Junction Licensing Center opened at the Stratton Student Center through the Institute’s partnership with the American Campus Communities (ACC). This center, located on the first floor, offers a preview of accommodations for the upcoming Fall 2024 semester at the new Graduate Junction residence.

David Friedrich, Housing and Residential Services Director, emphasized the importance of meeting the growing need for graduate student housing, citing rising prices in Cambridge. The Graduate Junction complex, part of MIT's commitment to add 950 on-campus beds for graduate students, will offer 676 beds in two buildings adjacent to Simmons Hall. The partnership with ACC aims to manage the demand for housing while providing off-campus-style living with on-campus convenience.

ACC representatives will be available at the licensing center from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday to offer tours, answer questions, and guide graduate students through the licensing process. Interested students are encouraged to visit the center in W20 or explore ACC's Graduate Junction website for more information.
