You need to use information about the real New House at MIT in order to solve this meta.
Don't worry too much about the disclaimer. New House recently underwent a renovation, but the information on that website is indeed correct for the purposes of this puzzle.
New House has five special "cultural" houses that are relevant to this puzzle.
The five cultural houses of New House each take up some floors of one or more of the six physical houses.
Use the floors as indices and the physical houses as an ordering.
Walking through the floors of New House, you see that the dorm still has a vibrant culture.
(Disclaimer: Not all of ⊥IW's recent history is exactly the same as MIT's. Please use information from 2016 when solving this puzzle.)
