Welcome to Next House!
We’re a community of 350+ close-knit Nexties who are known for being welcoming and friendly. We pride ourselves on our artistic talents, community involvement, and our build culture (did you see the Big Tipper during CPW?). Even though Next House is one of the larger dorms on campus, we foster both a strong house-wide community and smaller, more distinct, communities within each of our eight wings—you are always guaranteed to find something to do and a place that you can call “home.” Each wing is centered around its lounges, where Nexties both work and play—often collaborating on p-sets using our abundant whiteboards. We are each other’s workout buddies and dinner conversations. We have late-night jam sessions and spontaneous snowball fights, study late in dining, and watch the big game in the TFL (the tastefully-furnished lounge). Most importantly, Next House isn’t just a dorm for the residents, it’s our home.
One of the most unique features of Next House is the strength of our student groups. Next Gamers, Next Make, Next Act, Next Art, Next Haunt, Next Code, Next Service, Next Sustain, Next Bake, Next Football Club, and Next Big Thing are an integral part of our community; they throw events and create projects for the entire dorm. Some highlights from the past year: the building of the haunted house/escape-the-room adventure, performances of The Little Mermaid by Next Act, and weekly game nights sometimes lasting until 4:00 am. Next Exec, our student government, organizes many events throughout the year, including an annual formal in the fall and the Next ski trip in the early spring. Other events include JDoanuts (an evening of deep-fried donuts made by our very own RLAD, Jimmy Doan), Pi Day celebrations, and a regular Coffeehouse!
Living at Next House has been one of the most enjoyable and meaningful parts of our MIT experience, and we hope that as you begin your MIT career, you choose to not only live at Next House but also become
