MIT’s campus is open and runs more than a mile along the Charles River, with beautiful views of the Boston skyline and frequent, entertaining, student-led campus tours. MIT’s own (and Cambridge’s and Boston’s) museums—including the Boston Children’s Museum and Museum of Science—are close by.
To visit us or attend our events
- Events calendar: Keep an eye on our own events calendar and MIT’s campus-wide calendar.
- Our research groups frequently host their own events as well but may advertise them separately on their own sites.
Parking at MIT: It can be tricky. There are many parking lots, but few are free.
Public Transportation: Instead, we encourage you to make easy use of public transportation and make the one-minute walk from the Kendall/MIT subway station to our offices.
A prospective applicant or major? Plan ahead!
Our faculty and research group staff would love to talk you. Among other things, those chats help give us a sense of emerging research interests.
Some faculty members, of course, may not be on campus during the summer, or they may even be on sabbatical for a semester or longer to do extended research or book-writing. The way to make the most out of a visit is to contact a faculty member directly but know that they may not always be physically on campus.
