Nearly 90% of MIT students live in resident halls or at fraternities and sororities. The 11 dorms can hold approximately 5965 and each has a live-in faculty housemaster. Meal plans are also available.

MIT puts a strong emphasis on their athletic programs with 31 varsity sports, over 30 club teams, and 18 intramural sports. A member of the New England Women's & Men's Athletic Conference, the school boasts about 693 athletes (about one in five students!) with the most popular sports being Rowing, Football, and Basketball. The school has earned 233 Academic All-America citations, the most of any DIII school in the United States. On campus, there are 10 athletic facilities, 26 fields, and the Zesiger Center Gymnasium.

MIT also has over 500 student activity groups ranging from a campus radio station to the Quidditch Team to the Laboratory for Chocolate Science. Students can also take part in the Lecture Series Committee, model railroad club, folk dance, and ROTC. There are 72 ethnic and cultural associations, over 60 musical/theater/dance clubs, 23 religious organizations, 21 activism groups, and more to choose from.

The library system consists of five different libraries, one for each school. Combined, they contain over 2.9 million printed volumes, 2.4 million microforms, 49,000 journal subscriptions, reference databases, and more. There is also the MIT Museum on campus, which was founded in 1971.

Students also have the advantage of living so close to Boston where they can meet the 250,000 other students in the area. Many decide to volunteer at organizations such as Big Brothers, Big Sisters, or the Change a Life Program to help with homeless shelters, nursing homes, children’s hospitals, and more.
