Our current policy on giving departmental tours of our residence is outlined below:
Interested departments should notify SPEC (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) and our house manager about potential tour groups at least five days in advance of the tour.
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.
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.
