Visit Us

We are part of one of the coolest, most creative, and intellectually vibrant ecosystems on Earth.

Originally founded in Boston, MIT now makes its home in the city of Cambridge, a place the New York Times says, “blends its erudite character with a rich serving of arts and culture.”

Our campus is situated in Kendall Square, a hub brimming with technology giants, biotechnology firms, and startups. Ever evolving, the plans to develop our neighborhood are next-level cool.

But we aren’t all engineering and no play. Our campus is a mere 364.4 smoots (plus or minus one ear) across the Charles River to Boston, where foodies can indulge, sports fanatics can cheer, and history buffs can walk the streets of Paul Revere. We are also only a subway ride away from the beach and a short road trip to the Green Mountains or the White Mountains.

The bottom line: this city has something for everyone. We encourage you to come check it out for yourself.
