Information Session & Tour for Prospective Students
The MIT Undergraduate Admissions Information Sessions cover a variety of topics including academics, campus life, and the admissions and financial aid processes. Immediately following the information session is a student-led campus tour. Reservations are highly recommended for information sessions. Register for your visit.
Campus Tours for Everyone
MIT Campus Tours are open to the general public and led by current students. Learn more about MIT through their stories, experiences, and favorite facts. These 90-minute walking tours cover some of the most popular areas of the campus, including the Student Center, the Zesiger Center, the Infinite Corridor, Killian Court, and the Stata Center.
If you plan to bring a group of 10 or more to campus, please complete the private group request form.
There are special tours available for prospective students interested in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), or "Course 6" as we call it, and those interested in majoring in Aeronautics and Astronautics, also known as "AeroAstro" and "Course 16".
Course 6 Tours
If you're interested in EECS, we recommend that you make a special visit to the department while you're at MIT. A few days prior to your visit, email Anne M. Hunter or Vera Sayzew in the Course 6 Undergraduate Office.
Course 16 Tours
If you'd like to tour the AeroAstro Department, please contact Marie Stuppard at least two weeks in advance. Tours are given from 1-2PM, on Mondays and Fridays, excluding holidays.
Student Life Programs
The following programs are offered during the academic year:
The MIT Shadow a Student Program pairs prospective high school juniors and seniors with MIT undergraduates. Attend a class, grab some lunch and get an informal tour of campus while you ask away about your host's MIT experience! To arrange a shadow, please log into your MyMIT account and use the Shadow a Student Form. We need some time to arrange your visit, so please register at least two weeks in advance.
Curious to see what MIT students eat as brain food? Prospective students are welcome to join undergraduates for lunch and conversation at an on-campus dining facility. This option is open to students only and is available on class days from 12:30-2PM. Please see our Academic Calendar for details. You can sign up to participate by filling out this form.
