532 Beacon Street
Built in 1900 and fully renovated in 2014, the MIT Sigma Chi house has accommodated generations of brothers in historic Back Bay for over a century. In fact, it is one of the oldest houses on campus, and contains the character befitting its history and grandeur.
Located in Boston, just over the Harvard Bridge from Cambridge, the house is the perfect distance from campus. Our home has space to accommodate 31 brothers during the semester. Each room comes with full-sized beds and a desk for each resident.
The Music Room
Furnished with a baby grand piano and drumset as well as a TV, the music room is a frequent gathering place for brothers looking to relax or practice their musical talents. On Super Bowl Sunday, couches are arranged in stadium-seating for the annual watch party.
The Grand Staircase
Upon entry, visitors notice the remarkable spiral staircase, which connects all six floors of our house. For those too tired to make the trek upstairs, there is an elevator to service all of the floors.
The Dining Room
The house dining room features newly-restored tables and chairs and includes an attached kitchenette. After athletes in the house return home from practice, brothers meet here for dinner prepared by our house chef.
Situated on the second floor, the house library is the gathering place for official chapter meetings and an informal study space for brothers and friends of the house. On any given weekday, you might encounter several brothers working together here, and on weekends the space is opened up for social events and semi-formals.
Located in the basement, the full commercial kitchen is used by the house chef and brothers alike. You can often find brothers cooking their own meals on the weekends, while on weekdays you’ll smell tantalizing aromas, a sign of a delicious house dinner to come.
