We are a group of MIT graduate students and community allies who love our community, respect our neighbors, and care deeply about the future of the Institute. We are organizing to pass a zoning petition through the Cambridge City Council that would ensure MIT builds on-campus graduate housing for 1,800 additional students, which represents the existing graduate student housing demand identified by a recent Graduate Student Council survey, by the time the Volpe redevelopment project is complete. This commitment is designed both to meet the longstanding demand for graduate housing, as well as to do the institute's part to relieve pressure on the local affordable housing crisis that is likely to be exacerbated by the Volpe development.
