|What should a sample question look like?||examplestudentname|
|Can students that will only be MIT students for a few weeks in the Spring term get on-campus housing? This question is relevant to students that miss the February degree deadline by a few days such that they have to return to the US to receive tuition funding for the spring. Are there any penalties associated with this scenario?||ajoerger|
|What is the last date to apply for on-campus housing for students that have to return to the US due to the remote appointment policy changes?||ajoerger|
|Can we switch from single housing to family housing before the Spring semester? What would be the application procedure and deadline?||ycfan|
|Are guests allowed to stay (only a few times) in 2 bedroom apartments?||tibrewal|
|Can you elaborate more on the leasing contract (i.e how many months, earliest date to enter, latest date to leave, switching rooms, deposit, refund, utilities, etc) for the on-campus housing?||tommya|
|Can you elaborate about the procedures for switching rooms?||grad student|
|How is an international MIT graduate student with a partner who does not have work authorization expected to provide for a family? The standard salary barely covers rent in MIT housing and leaves nearly no money for food and clothing. What options are realistically available?||msch|
|For students who had a room appointment for last year into the Fall, but then cancelled it due to being remote, if the room is still vacant (e.g. one of a 2/3 bedroom appartment which has not been filled) is there any way to request a return to that specific room to live with known roommates again rather than choosing a 1-bedroom or getting paired with random roommate(s)?||dmayer|
I cannot enter US but I got my on campus housing assigned.
Normally this contract is renewable between Spring and Fall.
The grad housing web page says my room is kept for me until I return.
If I cannot return during the Spring semester, can I still renew my contract for Fall 2021?
|If I cannot come to the campus due to the travel ban or visa issue, which is out of my control, can I terminate my license for Spring 2020? Is there any fee for this? What is the deadline?||xsui|
