Facilities Committee

"MIT and the Association of Independent Living Groups (AILG) expect that all FSILG houses will be safe, secure, clean, comfortable, conducive to learning, proactively managed, and appropriately inspected and licensed."

Here is the Handout from the August 26 Student House Manager Training. This is a list useful best practices, checklists, and contacts for undergraduate house managers and others.

The AILG Facilities committee provides assistance to houses in meeting their facilities-related responsibilities.  Your main source for information in this regard is the Facilities Committee's House Manager's Manual. This manual is kept up to date and includes what you need to know about maintenance, inspections, and policies. 

A service specifically involving inspections is offered to houses by the AILG, the SLI (Safety, Licensing, and Inspections) Program, This offers assistance to houses to ensure they are ready to meet the requirements of municipal codes and associated inspections.
