What is the location for the theses presentations?

 E51-372 and E51-376.
The physical address of building E51 is 70 Memorial Drive. However, two major construction projects are affecting traffic in the area. Please enter E51 at the corner of Amherst and Wadsworth Streets. After entering at the revolving doors, take the stairs up to the next lobby. Walk the length of that lobby to the elevator at the far end. Go to the third floor and take a right as you exit the elevator. The classrooms will be on the right through the glass door.

What time will they begin and end?

Check-in and informal networking will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 21, and adjourn at approximately 5:00 p.m.

 When booking your return flight, take into consideration the following recommendations for travel time and security checks at Logan: allow two hours for a domestic flight and three hours for an international flight.

Are accommodations provided?
No, each person is responsible for his/her own accommodations.

Where should I stay?
Guests are responsible for their own hotel accommodations. We do not have a block of rooms reserved. However, the hotel property most conveniently located to the campus is the Marriott Cambridge Boston.

Marriott Cambridge Boston
Two Cambridge Center
50 Broadway
Cambridge MA 02142
617-494-6600

For additional accommodation listings, please see Visiting MIT CTL; however, please note that the room rates do not vary greatly for those hotel properties in proximity to MIT.

Where is the nearest airport?
Boston's Logan International Airport.

What is the best way to travel from the airport?
To get to MIT from the airport, we strongly suggest taking a cab. The trip will take anywhere from 15-30 minutes, and the fare is roughly $30-35. The cab fare from Logan is always a bit more than the return, because a surcharge at the airport and a tunnel toll add approximately $5 to the total fare.

If you live locally and prefer public transportation, take the MBTA Red Line to the Kendall/MIT stop. It is a short three block walk from the T.

What is the best way to travel to the airport?
We suggest taking a cab. There are two cab stands - one on either side of the Marriott, on Broadway or on Main Street, both a short walk from E51. This is the most efficient means with regard to time. The MBTA Silver Line is an option, but will add perhaps 40 minutes.

Should I rent a car?
We do not recommend renting a car. The expense on top of poorly marked streets and lack of available parking makes having a car more of a nuisance than a convenience.

If I drive, how do I get there and where can I park?
If you are renting a car or will be driving, MapQuest and Google Map offer excellent mapping services to get you from your doorstep to MIT.

The nearest self-parking garage is The Green Garage, adjacent to the Cambridge Marriott (50 Broadway). Rates are as follows:

  •   3-10 hrs, $36
  • 10-24 hrs, $40

This garage is not owned or operated by the Marriott.

What should I wear?
Appropriate attire is business (students will be attired in coats and ties).

What if I have a dietary restriction or allergy?
If you have a dietary restriction or allergy, please email MIT CTL Events Coordinator, Nancy Martin, nlmartin@mit.edu to let her know.
