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)
    GRT: Amanda Horne (ahorne)

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

  • Second West (Pi Tau Zeta)
    GRT: Peter Sharpe (pds)

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

  • Third West (floorpi)
    GRT: David Ramsay (dramsay)

    floorpi is a MELLOW!!!!! place, whatever that means. We enjoy playing board games, solving puzzles, and fighting scurvy.

  • Forty-one West [Cat hall]
    GRT: Dustin Hayden (dhayden)

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

  • Fifth West [Cat hall]
    GRT: Mohammed "Mo" Toure (mtoure)

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

  • First East [Cat hall]
    GRT: B. Jack Hanly (hanly)

    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: Hampton Smith (hampton)

    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]
    GRT: Hugh Ebdy (ebdy)

    Cooking, construction projects, fire.

  • Fourth East (Slugfest)
    GRT: TBD

    Cocoa every school night at 11, end-of-term Formal Cocoa (dress up and drink cocoa), Bemix Music system (music server with touch switches in the bathrooms), lots of cooking and projects.

  • Fifth East (Florey) [Cat hall]
    GRT: Phillip Daniel (docphil)

    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.
