Getting to the Department of Architecture
The headquarters of the Department of Architecture are located on the third floor of Building 7, which is located on the left side of the main entrance at 77 Massachusetts Avenue.
If you are coming from Kendall Square there are two ways:
- walk down Main St, turn left on Vassar St., turn left again on Mass Ave.
- walk through the MIT campus: cross through Building E23, keep walking west through the main open spaces until you enter Building 8. Walk down the "infinite corridor" until you reach the main hall in Building 7 (77 Mass Ave)
The closest subway station to campus is Kendall Square on the Red Line, you may also want to consider going to Central Square (also on the Red Line) or taking the #1 or CT1 bus across the Charles River from Back Bay. Public transportation fares and schedules may be found at the MBTA website.
Driving to MIT
The campus map has directions for getting to MIT from the airport, via public transportation, and by car or Hood blimp.
Parking at MIT
Parking in Cambridge and Boston can be expensive and hard to find. Whenever possible, use public transportation to get to the MIT campus. If you must drive to the campus, on- and off-street parking is available for a fee, but most public parking is not very close to the center of the MIT campus. Visiting prospective students may park in designated areas on a first-come, first-served basis.
More parking information is available at the campus map website.
