  • MIT can be reached by car, train, or bus.
  • If you are going to drive all the way to campus, MIT's parking information can be found here:
  • Another popular option is to take the MBTA red line to campus, and get off at the Kendall/MIT stop. From there, it is a relatively short walk to building 34. On the map link above, the Kendall/MIT stop is just outside building E38. Parking is also available at the terminal stations on the red line - the easiest to reach if you are coming from outside Boston is probably Alewife in Arlington.
  • If you're arriving via bus, there are a number of lines that run by campus. Consult the MBTA website (or Google Maps) for more information.
  • We are also looking into helping arrange carpooling. More information to come.


  • If you're looking for a hotel room the night before / after, there are two hotels near campus - the Kendall Hotel and Marriott Hotel, both on Main Street. There is no block of rooms, however, so please make whatever arrangements make sense for you.
