In-person info sessions and tours
We offer two types of campus visits each week.
- Info session and student-led tour: Our info sessions are hosted by admissions officers who share details about academics, campus life, the application process, and financial aid. A student-led campus tour immediately follows the info session.
- Student-led tour only: One of our amazing students will take you on a tour of their favorite places on campus.
Info sessions last half an hour, and student led tours are one hour.
Reservations are required. Should you arrive without a reservation for a session, due to MIT’s Covid-19 policies, we will not be able to accommodate you.
In-person group tours
If you would like to bring a group of 6–50 people to campus, you are welcome to request a group tour. We are not able to accommodate groups of 6–50 people in our regular information sessions and tours.
Reservations are required. Should you arrive without a reservation for a session, we will not be able to accommodate you.

Severe weather: What if MIT closes?
In case of severe weather, the Admissions Office follows the Institute emergency closing guidelines. If MIT is closed, the Admissions Office is closed and all visit programming is canceled. We will post any closures to mitadmissions.org and notify you of any cancellations by email. If you would like to reschedule your visit, it’s easy! Simply fill out a new reservation form.
