Come visit us! The best way to learn about MIT is to experience it in person.
Basic guided tour information
The Office of Admissions conducts information sessions followed by student-led campus tours for prospective students and families every Monday through Friday, excluding federal, Massachusetts, and Institute holidays and the winter break period (see the MIT academic calendar).
Reservations are requested.
Groups of 10 or more are required to complete the group registration process in advance.
Sessions and tours are not held when the campus is closed. Visitors are advised to check the MIT Alert page or call 617-253-SNOW (7669) to ensure that the Institute is open and operating as usual.
