The Phi Beta Epsilon Corporation today announced that it will offer
summer housing for nonmember students in its newly renovated facility on
the MIT campus at 400 Memorial Drive, Cambridge. With a view of the
Charles River and the Boston Back Bay as well as central air
conditioning, the fraternity house offers an exceptional summer
residence opportunity for students in Cambridge. "We are pleased to once
again offer a summer residence opportunity for students on the MIT
campus, particularly in light of the fact that a number of other MIT
affiliated residences will be closed this summer," said Steven C.
Carhart '70, President of the Phi Beta Epsilon Corporation.
Applications for summer residence may be submitted through the
fraternity's website, http://pbe.mit.edu/website/smmer.
Questions may be directed via email to email@example.com.
Admission to the summer community will be at the discretion of the
fraternity's summer management committee, and all residents must abide
by the posted summer rules. Preference will be given to registered MIT
The $7.2 million renovation project is intended to set new standards for
the quality of undergraduate residential life at MIT through its
adoption of advanced audio-visual learning equipment; project
collaboration areas; spacious public areas; broad application of
sustainability technologies; full disability access; and state of the
art durability and low maintenance characteristics. The house was
originally built in 1916 when the fraternity moved to Cambridge together
with MIT, and was last renovated in 1970. Full details of the renovation
are available at www.epsteinjoslin.com/current/phi-beta-epsilon-house-at-mit.
