Living in the Number Six Club

The Number Six Club is the only privately owned residence on campus. We — through our alumni organization —, have privately owned this house since 1915. In the past hundred years, it has undergone several major rennovations and additions.

Located right in the center of Cambridge, on MIT's west campus, the Number Six Club offers a great and convinient summer location to live in. It is just a 15-minute walk from Boston. Some of the rooms overlook the picturesque view of the Charles River that is quite a sight to behold in the lovely Boston summer. It is quite close to the heart of the city, but still offers a peaceful environment.

Our house has an open kitchen complete with oven and fridge space, laundry machines, sun roof and BBQ in garden, and spacious common areas. We can offer high-speed Wi-Fi Internet and there are house computers for everyone to use.
