A "complaint" is the formal name for a report submitted to the Institute alleging that a student has violated an MIT policy. Anyone who has information indicating that a student might have violated policy is encouraged to submit a complaint. When writing a complaint, you are encouraged to be as detailed as possible in recounting the events in question. If there is supporting documentation (photos, text message logs, copies of receipts showing damage amounts, etc.), please submit this documentation also.
Please contact the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards if you have any questions or require assistance in considering whether to submit a complaint or in completing the complaint itself. You may also find our FAQs for referring a case useful.
