Thank you for your interest in a private group tour of MIT! Please review the information below before submitting your request.
Groups of 6–50 students are welcome to submit a request for a private group tour led by a current MIT student. Tours last approximately 60 minutes. Please note this tour is designed to assist prospective undergraduate students in their college search process. These visits do not include an information session, and we are not able to accommodate groups larger than 50 people.
This form is a request only. Your visit is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation email from our office. We require a minimum of 3 weeks notice to schedule a private group tour. Please allow 3–5 business days for a response regarding the status of your request.
Private group fees
There is no charge for U.S. school groups or nonprofits when reserved by a teacher or counselor.
If we are able to accommodate your request, we will send you an invoice with a link to a secure website to make your payment. Please note that we are only able to accept credit card payments through this website. Final confirmation of your tour will be sent after the payment has been received.
Day of the visit
Visitors should leave plenty of travel time to get to campus, taking Boston traffic into consideration. Groups that arrive more than 15 minutes late will not be accommodated.
Visitors must conduct themselves respectfully while on the MIT campus. Disruptive behavior will result in the termination of your tour and loss of future tour privileges.
Cancellations and refunds
Cancellations must be received no later than two business days before your scheduled tour date for a full refund. No refunds will be issued for cancellations received within two business days of the scheduled tour date, or for groups who arrive late and are not able to attend their scheduled tour.
Full refunds will be offered in the case of an Institute-wide closure or a sick or otherwise unavailable tour guide.
Please email [email protected] with any questions regarding the scheduling of a group tour.
