Halls

East Campus has ten halls spread out between its two buildings, called "parallels". Halls are named based on their floor number (First, Second, etc.) and parallel (West or East), though some halls also have nicknames.

Each hall has a different culture and personality. You can use the blurbs and links below to learn more about a particular hall. Please note that each hall maintains its own website.

West Parallel East Parallel
  • First West (Stickman)
    GRTs: Patrrick Barragan (barragan)

    Laid-back, tight-knit, friendly hall. Runs the annual Pumpkin Drop.

  • Second West (Pi Tau Zeta)
    GRT: Dan Strawser (dstrawse)

    Loves making things: mechanical things, electrical things, whole lambs on a spit, liquid nitrogen ice cream (CryoFAC!)... Committed to Overdesign.

  • Third West (Floor Pi)
    GRT: Leilani Battle (leibatt)

    A social hall, whose residents enjoy video games and cooking.

  • Forty-one West [Cat hall]
    GRTs: Nadya Peek (peek), Jeff Warren (warren)

    Lots of personal freedom, as long as it doesn't infringe on other residents' happiness.

  • Fifth West [Cat hall]
    GRTs: John Kendall Nowocin (knowocin)

    Midnight tea, weekly cookies and cheese, karaoke, people hall clots, and chill party time.

  • First East [Cat hall]

    Friendly people, a home-built LED disco dance floor, the greatest number of oscilloscopes per capita, and the only elevator in EC.

  • Second East (Beast)
    GRT: Alan Long (aelong)

    Whatever you're into, you can probably find at least one poor bastard to drag into it. Right now, residents are into music, (fire) spinning, #swole, mural-making, cuddles, existential angst, and electronics.

  • Third East (Tetazoo) [Cat hall]
    GRTs: Christopher Follett (follett), Elizabeth Finn (efinn)

    Cooking, construction projects, fire.

  • Fourth East (Slugfest)
    GRT: Ella Kim (ella)

  • Fifth East (Florey) [Cat hall]
    GRT: Srinivasa Aditya Bhattaru (sbattar)

    Lots of personal freedom, a black hallway, a dark lord, cooking, lounging, and socializing. More US Supreme Court Acquittals per capita than any other living group at MIT.
