Navigating Campus

How do I know where the event is located?

Every location on campus is accompanied by either a street address or a building and room number. MIT's building numbering system is notoriously confusing, but this specialized map displays all building numbers and locations. Locations usually start with the building number followed by the floor/room number (i.e. 11-245). This address indicates that the location is in Building 11, on the second floor, in room 245 (that’s our office!)

Where can I park?

Parking in Cambridge can be challenging: it’s both expensive and hard to find. Visitors should not count on finding a metered space in the immediate area, but some public parking may be available in local garages. Please also visit MIT’s parking page.

What is the nearest subway stop?

The Kendall Square/MIT stop  and the Central Square stop on the MBTA Red Line are the closest T stations. The MIT campus is also served by several bus routes like the 1, CT1, & CT2; visit the MBTA website for times and schedules.
