Hotel Reservations

Booking Information

MIT Model UN is not responsible for reservation of hotel rooms for the conference. Delegates may either commute or book hotel rooms nearby MIT. We currently have partnerships with the Marriott in Kendall Square, within walking distance of our conference: Boston Marriott Cambridge at 50 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142.

How can delegates reserve rooms with these hotels?

With our partnership, we have distinct room blocks in each of the two hotels listed. Each of these rooms are offered at subsidized rates relative to the normal nightly fee. Once your delegation is confirmed, please either call the hotels directly and mention you are booking through the MITMUNC XVI Room Block, or you may also book the rooms directly through the below links:

Boston Marriott Cambridge (1-800-228-9290) at the following link.

How much will rooms cost?

Through our subsidized rates, rooms at the Boston Marriott will be around $169 per night.

How many nights are these rooms available for?

Our block with the hotels is valid through 2 nights over the weekend of the conference. Check-in is arranged for Friday, February 9th while check-out will be on Sunday, February 11th. If you are planning to arrive before the 9th or stay beyond the 11th, please know that the subsidized rates that apply for these two nights may not apply for other nights. Please let the hotels know in advance, and they will do their best to accommodate the same rates for those additional night(s).

What types of rooms are available in the block?

There are a mix of rooms available (1 king bed, 2 double beds, 1 king + 1 sofa, etc.). Please ensure that your delegates are comfortable with their particular housing arrangements. Due to the large number of double rooms requested for MUN delegations, we cannot guarantee double rooms for every school. Rooms will be allocated appropriately on a first-come, first-serve basis, so please book as soon as possible!

What is the deadline to reserve hotel rooms?

Reserving through the MITMUNC XVI Room Block will be available until January 18th 2023. After that, any unused rooms in our Block will be released back to the hotel for general sale and any delegations will be subject to paying normal nightly rates rather than the subsidized rates of our block.

What amenities do these hotels offer?

Both hotels offer free Wifi, laundry spaces, fitness centers, and daily housekeeping. Reserving with the Residence Inn also includes continental breakfast, whereas the Boston Marriott does not offer breakfast. For all delegations traveling by car, parking is an extra fee at both hotels ($55 at the Boston Marriott).

How far are the hotels from Building E51 (location of committee sessions)?

Both hotels and the committee session location are both shown below for reference. The walking distance is around 5 minutes for the Boston Marriott.

Frequently Asked Questions

The MIT Model United Nations Conference is the premier international Model UN conference for high school students with a special focus on small committee sizes.

Unlike other conferences, in which many students encounter little to no leeway for participation inside massive general sessions, MITMUNC leverages committee sizes in such a way that gives students the most opportunity for personal contribution and distinction.

In order to ensure participation in MITMUNC, faculty advisors and delegates must pay special attention to our conference deadlines as well as apply early and properly. Please visit the Registration page to register.

MITMUNC is only open to high school students in all nations across the world and not to those currently enrolled in a full-time college or university. Please note that each school may register a maximum of 40 delegates.

MITMUNC XVI will have no virtual committees.

You may compete as a single delegate. An advisor is not needed for the conference. However, we recommend students contact their school's Model United Nations club to foster interest in attending MITMUNC as the school's delegation rather as an individual delegate.

MITMUNC is committed to making the conference accessible to people of all backgrounds and circumstances. A significant portion of our delegates receive aid every year in the form of registration discounts. If payment of conference fees is a barrier to participation to MITMUNC, you may apply for financial aid to assist in reduction of conference fees by filling in the financial aid section of the registration form.

No technology is allowed inside the committee room unless approved by us.

We only allow single delegate - one person competes per delegate.

MITMUNC China is closely co-organized with ASDAN China. ASDAN is an educational non-profit based in the United Kingdom and offers international educational programs in China, Europe, North America. MITMUNC China is a three-day conference that follows a similar schedule to our flagship conference, with the same rules and procedures, and it offers hundreds of Chinese high school students across the Asian nation the opportunity to debate upon important international issues posing veritable challenges to the world today, such as the reality of climate change, cybersecurity, and refugee assistance in conflict zones.
