McCormick Hall due for renovation in summer 2025

In an email to McCormick Hall residents, Suzy Nelson, Vice Chancellor & Dean for Student Life, along with current McCormick heads of housing Raul Radovitsky and Flavia Cardarelli, detailed plans for the closure of the hall in Summer 2025 for renovations that would last for two years. McCormick is the only all-female dormitory on campus.

McCormick’s closure aligns with the re-opening of East Campus (EC) in fall 2025: EC closed in the summer of 2023, and will be reopened in 2025 with elevators, air conditioning, and other modern features. 

To ensure community involvement and support during the transition, a McCormick Hall Transition Team (MHTT) will be formed. This team, comprising of resident student leaders and staff from various divisions of the MIT administration will solicit input and address concerns from residents.

"We want to develop an effective, supportive transition plan for the McCormick community," stated Suzy Nelson. "Communication and community involvement will be central to the process."

As part of the initiative, an frequently-asked-questions list has been created to address immediate questions, with future community meetings planned to provide further information and gather feedback.
