Maseeh Hall is the largest undergraduate dorm at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and also the newest. Opened in Fall 2011 after renovations to the historic building were completed, Maseeh Hall represents the culmination of a years-long community building project called the Phoenix Group. This group cultivated relationships and established the set of values that would transfer to Maseeh Hall, years before the building’s completion.

Several aspects of Maseeh Hall are unique amongst MIT’s diverse living group options. Maseeh Hall participates in Residence-Based Advising, which means that undergraduate associate advisors live right in the dorm. Maseeh has the largest dining hall on campus; the Howard Dining Hall serves 19 meals a week, including weekday breakfast and lunch, weekend brunch, and daily dinners.

The complex of Maseeh Hall, officially designated W1, is a historic building at a scenic and convenient location: at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Memorial Drive, W1 is directly adjacent to the main MIT building and just a ten minute walk to Boston.

Burger was so overcooked it was like sand. The soup was more salty than seawater to the point our entire table tried some just to experience how bad it was. The "grilled" chicken is premade and kept in a salty bath with liquid smoke for flavoring. Lots of grilled cheese here with a large emphasis on the panini press. The precut fruit is somehow flavorless. I don't know how to mess that up but somehow they did (apart from bananas, those were normal thankfully) Dessert was fine too. This place tries to be way too classy for it's own good. The worst dining hall not only at MIT, but also of every other college I've visited friends at.

Definitely not worth $14. If you're on a meal plan please use literally any other dining hall on campus.

I'm a freshman so I've only had one meal here and it was because Simmons was closed. They ran out of pancakes and my entire day was subject to intense depression. Other than that I would recommend doing Uber Eats every meal as you will still manage to save 5 grand.
