The Boston Skyline...
The MIT Main Engineering Library...
MIT is located in Cambridge, MA. Just across the river from Boston, the cost of living is quite high in comparison to many other duty stations. Some active duty military students choose to live in Government Quarters on Hanscom Air Force Base. Another inexpensive option might be U.S. Coast Guard Housing in South Weymouth, MA. You can reach them at 617.223.3348. Just mention you're looking for housing in South Weymouth.
The nearest Naval Station is in Newport, Rhode Island, which is about an hour and a half south of Boston. However, a significant amount of assistance is available through both Hanscom AFB and the local Coast Guard Base in Boston's North End.
