Kosher Dining at MIT

In September 2011, MIT opened Maseeh Hall as a new undergraduate dormitory, with housing space for over 400 undergraduates and a first-ever all-you-care-to-eat dining hall/dining plan, including a kosher station. This full, integrated kosher meal option was an historic development for the MIT Jewish community.

Students living in certain dormitories are required to purchase a meal plan; any MIT student living in other MIT dorms or living groups may also choose to purchase an MIT meal plan. At each meal, students can choose any of the cafeteria food options in Howard Dining of Maseeh Hall, including from the kosher servery. With 24 hours advance notice, kosher meals can be delivered to any other House with a dining hall.

Some students choose to split their dining options between meal plans and suite-living with their own kitchens. MIT offers kosher suites in Burton-2, which has become a hub of Jewish activity (and eating), even for those living elsewhere on campus. Incoming first-year students interested in living in Maseeh Hall or in a kosher suite in Burton-2 must request it on their room request form, fill out a supplementary housing form with MIT requesting kosher living, and inform Hillel that s/he wants a kosher living option.

If you do not have a meal or TechCash account, reservations must be pre-paid for in Howard Dining at Maseeh Hall by noon Thursday. Cancellations should be sent to kosher@mit.edu.
