FROM I-90 (MASSACHUSETTS TURNPIKE - WEST):
Follow I-90 East to the Cambridge / Brighton exit (exit 18).
Following the signs to Cambridge, cross the River Street Bridge,
and continue straight about 1 mile to Central Square. Turn right
onto Massachusetts Avenue and follow for about 1/2 mile. The main
entrance to MIT will be on your left. If you cross the river again,
you have gone too far.
FROM ROUTE I-93:
Take Exit 26 and follow the signs to Back Bay along Storrow Drive
West, approximately 1.5 miles, to the exit for Route 2A. Exit 2A
will be on the left, just before the Harvard Bridge (more
appropriately called the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge). The Charles
River will be on your right. As you cross the bridge, you will be
looking at MIT -- the Great Dome and academic facilities are on the
right, the dormitories and athletic facilities are on the left.
BY PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION (MBTA):
Take the Red Line to the Kendall / MIT Station or the Central Square
Station, both of which are a short walk from the campus. The walk
from Central Square takes about 10 minutes and takes you right down
Massachusetts Ave. The Kendall / MIT Station is on the edge of the
east end of campus, and as soon as you enter an MIT building, you
can get to the other buildings without going outside.
