We come from many places.
We represent nearly 40 countries and speak over 40 languages. Our backgrounds and experiences at MIT are diverse.
We share a common experience.
Almost all of us are new to the Boston area. For nearly half of us, it’s our first time living in the US or first time living abroad. Whether we’re learning to navigate a new city, immersing ourselves in a new language, or adjusting to a different kind of work, our time at MIT brings us unexpected lifestyle and career changes. Many of us find friends at MIT spouses&partners who understand the transition we are experiencing.
We continue to develop our skills and enrich the community.
Our wide range of professional and education experiences all benefit MIT and the surrounding community, although we do it in various ways.
Many of us look for work: MIT spouses&partners offers a job-seekers’ support group, regular job search training sessions, and opportunities for volunteer leadership.
Many of us volunteer: In the past year, members worked at Cradles to Crayons, The Greater Boston Food Bank, Splash, ATASK, and many other organizations that match our personal interests.
Many of us study: members take classes to develop language and professional skills, participate in the MIT Language Conversation Exchange, and share knowledge with others in clubs.
Many of us serve as primary caregivers: MIT spouses&partners is a way to meet parents with kids of the same age and learn about childcare providers with connections to the MIT community.
We are excited to meet you!
There are many ways to have a meaningful experience while you are at MIT. MIT spouses&partners can help you find your way, explore new possibilities and connect with the resources and support you need.
