The MIT campus in the Kendall Square area is undergoing a major renovation.
There are an incredible number of campus construction projects ongoing.
Please be mindful of where you are walking and pay attention to police details.
Where will the course be held?
The program will be held in the Tang Center Building (E51), on the MIT Campus in Cambridge, MA. The physical address is 70 Memorial Drive, but the entrance is at 2 Amherst St. through the revolving door at the corner of Amherst and Wadsworth Streets. There is an elevator at street level, just past the stairs to the right. Go to the third floor; take a right as you exit the elevator; walk the length of the lobby to the intersecting hallway; take another right and go through the glass doors; room 395 is the last classroom at the end of the hallway (facing the river).
What should I wear?
Appropriate attire is business casual; no ties or suit coats are necessary.
What if I have a dietary restriction or allergy?
Please email Nancy Martin.
Are accommodations provided?
No, each person is responsible for his/her own accommodations.
Where should I stay?
Please see Visiting MIT for many helpful links to, well, visiting MIT. Two hotel properties not listed here are The Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott, located one mile north of campus at 215 Monsignor O'Brien Highway; and Courtyard by Marriott, located two miles west of campus at 777 Memorial Drive.
Where is the nearest airport?
Boston's Logan International Airport.
What is the best way to travel from the airport to campus?
To get to MIT from the airport, we suggest taking a cab. The trip will take anywhere from 15-30 minutes, and the fare is roughly $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.
UberX is now allowed pick-up service at Logan International Airport.
If you prefer public transportation, use airport transit to arrive at South Station and then take the MBTA (T) Red Line to the Kendall/MIT stop.
What is the best way to travel to the airport?
We suggest taking a cab or shared ride service to arrive at the airport in 20-25 minutes. There is a cab stand at the Marriott, 50 Broadway. Alternately, during high traffic times, take the Red Line from Kendall/MIT and transfer to the Silver Line SL-1 at South Station. The Silver Line has service every fifteen minutes for all airport terminals. This trip takes about 60 minutes from MIT.
Please allow two hours for a domestic flight (three hours for an international flight) between adjournment and your return flight.
Should I rent a car?
We do not recommend renting a car.
If I drive, how do I get there and where can I park?
Use maps.google.com or GPS to find your best route.
The nearest self-parking garages are the Kendall Square South Garage, located at 350 Kendall Street, Cambridge and Kendall Square Green Garage, located at 90 Broadway (adjacent to the Cambridge Marriott).
Rates are $27 for 3-10 hours; $30 for 10-24 hours.
