First year students, welcome to MIT! This site is the official home for MIT's virtual 2020 residence exploration for first year students. Or as we like to call it: SCUFFY! (Support CommUnities For First Years — it's not the best acronym)

Explore Dorm Community

Just like a normal year, you’ll get to explore the Dorms and Cultural Houses at MIT, and be placed in a small community within them. We’re trying to recreate the dorm life experience, from frantically asking upperclassmen all your weird MIT-specific questions (just how do you get a UROP? What even is a banana lounge?) to random conversations with people at 3am (“we should build a chocolate cabinet”). And of course, that experience will be incomplete without YOU!!!

ESC Events~

Please join us from Aug. 23 onwards, as we start our extravaganza of 173 events (ESC Events~) just for you guys! In the meantime, feel free to check out the details in The Details. If you have any questions, reach out to us at [email protected].

<aside> 💡 Note: The SCUFFY Dorm Placement is not tied to Housing and Residential Services. So, your placement will not be tied to your housing assignments in future semesters but serves as a mechanism to connect you with other MIT students. Participation in SCUFFY is optional but encouraged.
