Add me to the list of women in this thread who stayed in a frat house over the summer. Not in Boston, but still. They're usually empty over the summer- why is it so weird to think that they'd rent out the space? In my case I was working for repertory theatre company that the university had in the summer and everyone was put up in frat houses, but I know people who were not affiliated with the university and renting rooms.

MIT fraternities offer housing to college women. Usually about 1200-1600 for the full Summer. Meals are provided at some places. Check out the IFC page at MIT. It has information for all 20ish houses.
I lived at Sigma Chi last summer. The cheapest, def. the most fun.
Men are not allowed unless they are brothers of that fraternity.

Heck I almost joined a frat when PiKA went coed in the 1970s. They are not in Boston. Not all MIT frats are. But still, it looks like the ones that rent out in the summer are mostly in Boston.

Interfraternity Council at MIT

TDC is next to Baker house so that is as close to Mass Ave as you are going to get on the Cambridge side of the river. Good luck!

ETA I see PiKA left the national organization and became an independent living group after I left. You can always ask if they rent space in the summer.

I'm a recent grad of MIT and pretty much all the Frats and Independent Living Groups (pretty much just non-national and non-gender-specific frats) take in boarders during the summer. I recommend WILG on Mass Ave in Cambridge. the house is safe, in reasonably good repair, and closer to restaurants / bars / public transportation than a lot of the other places. Good luck!

Try contacting the guys here. If they don't have any housing or a plan for summer 2012 yet, you can at least get some preliminary info from them:

Sigma Chi Fraternity, Alpha Theta Chapter at MIT

My Sister lived in one of the fraternities for a summer while she was interning downtown. It was a very nice building, easily nicer than any dorm I ever lived in when in college. I think she even had a parking space (at an extra cost).
