Summer Housing

Looking for a clean, affordable, and modern house to spend your summer in Boston? Check out 119 Bay State Road. Easy access to Fenway Park, Kenmore Square, Cambridge, and the greater Boston area! Beta Theta Pi opens its house up for the summer for undergraduate students seeking a nice place to spend the summer while in Boston.

Our house recently underwent renovations to clean up and modernize the house. The brothers do a well job throughout the year to maintain the cleanliness of the house and it is expected that summer tenants engage in daily and/or weekly chores to maintain that same level of cleanliness.

MOVE IN DATE: Sunday, May 29, 2022 at 8 am

MOVE OUT DATE: Saturday, August 20, 2022 at 12 pm.

  • No early access or late extensions are allowed as brothers claim first priority to the bedroom outside of these dates.

PRICING:

  • Singles: $3800

  • Doubles: $3450

  • Triples: $3000

Prices reflect the cost per person for the entire summer.

Two parking spots may be available for an additional cost. If parking is available, tenants will go into bidding for the remaining spots. Please indicate on the summer housing form if you are interested in parking.

The house is co-ed during the summer and tenants are encouraged if you can find roommates for the summer. Individual rooms will be single-sex unless approved by the summer house manager.

A $650 security deposit must be paid by all tenants and will be returned to all tenants at the end of the summer. The deposit will be used to cover all damages and incidentals, should there be any assumed to the property by the tenant. Failure to clean the room upon departure by Saturday, August 20 at noon will result in a $350 cleaning fee taken from the security deposit.

Summer Housing FAQ

More questions? Contact beta-housemanager@mit.edu

Can I move in before Sunday, May 29, 2022 or move out after Saturday, August 20, 2022?

No. Our housing move-in date follows MIT's post-commencement move-out date. MIT Tenants are allowed to move in as early as 8 a.m. on May 29. All tenants must move out by noon on August 20. 

What amenities are available to tenants?

Tenants have access to a full-size kitchen in the basement, a small kitchenette on the first floor, complimentary WiFi, co-ed bathrooms and showers on all floors (expect the first floor). There are also two full-size industrial refrigerators and freezers to store food. Each room has a bed, a desk, and a dresser per tenant as well as access to a closet
Air conditioning is not provided, but tenants are allowed to install an air conditioning unit in their room as every room has at least one window.

Can I receive a discount if I stay for a part of the summer?

Our prices are set for the entire summer. We try to house tenants who can maximize their time living at the house. If you find someone to take your place for the remainder of the summer, please email beta-housemanager@mit.edu with your inquiry.

Can I live together with some of my friends?

On the application, please indicate if you would like a roommate. Please ensure that your requested roommate also fills out the form. We will do our best to accommodate all tenants and requested roommates.

How do chores work during the summer?

Chores and routine house work are expected of tenants to maintain cleanliness among the house. Chores will be assigned at a house meeting at the beginning of the summer term. They are relatively small individual tasks.

What do I do if I no longer need housing?

If you submitted an application, please email beta-housemanager@mit.edu to let us know that you are no longer searching for housing.

When will I know if I've been accepted for summer housing?

We plan to notify all tenants if they've been accepted or waitlisted by mid-April. If you don't hear from us by the end of April, assume you didn't receive a spot.

How many people can live in the house?

The house can fit 20 people. There are two singles, three doubles, and four triples. Priority is given to tenants who can commit to the entire summer or as much of it as possible.
