We are excited that you're joining the Sidney-Pacific Graduate Community!

Seven hundred graduate students from more than 50 nations found around the globe reside here at Sidney-Pacific, known as SP for short. It's SP's talented residents—experts in fields from mathematics and engineering to economics and architecture—that make this community so unique and special. Be sure to take advantage of your time here at Sidney-Pacific to meet your fellow residents. After all, some of your SP neighbors will become life-long friends!

We have prepared this guide to introduce you to the SP community and to let you know about the many resources that are available to you as an SP resident. We hope that you will find this guide to be useful as you settle into your SP apartment.

Also, make sure to check out the calendar of SP Orientation activities on page 26 of your orientation guide! We have planned a variety of exciting events that will be held during the next few weeks. These events have been designed to introduce you to your fellow SP residents as well as to graduate students across MIT's campus. We hope you enjoy yourself at these events.

Have a great time during Orientation and throughout your time at SP!
