Tour Policy

Our current policy on giving departmental tours of our residence is outlined below:

  1. Interested departments should notify SPEC ( and our house manager about potential tour groups at least five days in advance of the tour.
  2. SP tour leaders provide comprehensive overviews of graduate residential life at MIT and a full tour of SP's many facilities (its individual rooms, its common spaces, and an overview of its community events) - such tours run between 20-30 minutes, though this time can be adjusted. The cost of an SP tour session (per leader) is $25.
  3. Tour groups be limited in size to 15 people or fewer. This is primarily for security and room occupancy-limit concerns. If a group is larger than 15 people, then that group should be split amongst multiple tour leaders.
