Boston bans parties at MIT frats
Officials in Boston placed an indefinite ban on parties and other large gatherings at MIT fraternities, sororities and other independent living groups that are located within the city in October.
The decision came about a month after a 18-year-old MIT student and fraternity member fell four stories and suffered injuries during a party at a Kenmore Square frat house.
There are at least 18 MIT fraternities, three sororities and two independent living groups in Boston, according to a map of their locations.
In addition to the Boston ban, MIT imposed a temporary occupancy limit of three times the legal residential occupancy on houses in Brookline and Cambridge.
