Directions to the MIT News Office

FROM THE MAIN MIT ENTRANCE AT 77 MASSACHUSETTS AVE. (blue marking on map):

*Note: The MBTA #1 bus stops in front of 77 Massachusetts Ave. and provides another public transit route to get to our offices.

  • Go up the stairs at 77 Massachusetts Ave., through the main doors and into the large lobby area. Walk straight ahead to the Infinite Corridor (a long, narrow hallway).
  • Look for a set of stairs on the right. (Note that they'll be opposite the Student Services Center on the left.)
  • Walk up to the second floor. Once there, look straight ahead, and very slightly to the left. You'll see a set of glass doors. This is the entrance to Building 11.
  • Walk through the entrance and straight down to the end of the hallway. You'll see an elevator and a set of stairs; take either one up to the fourth floor.

FROM THE KENDALL SQUARE RED LINE T-STOP (red marking on map):

  • From the train station exit, follow Main Street away from the river (you'll pass a Cambridge Trust Bank on your left).
  • Turn left onto Ames Street, and follow it until you see a triangular-shaped building on your right (MIT Building 66, or the Landau Building).
  • Take a right after the building, and continue straight ahead, on the walkway, through a large courtyard. (You'll pass a tall building on your left, which is Building 54, or the Green Building.) Keep going straight until you can't go any further; you'll be at a wall of buildings.
  • Look for a small staircase on the left, which leads up to the Infinite Corridor (a long, narrow hallway).
  • Walk straight ahead down the Infinite Corridor. You'll pass through Lobby 10, which has glass doors on the left that overlook Killian Court and the Charles River. Just keep going.
  • Look for a set of stairs on the left. (Note that they'll be opposite the Student Services Center on the right.)
  • Walk up to the second floor. Once there, look straight ahead and very slightly to the left. You'll see a set of glass doors. This is the entrance to Building 11.
  • Walk through the entrance and straight down to the end of the hallway. You'll see an elevator and a set of stairs; take either one up to the fourth floor.

PARKING

Parking near campus is not easy. There is often street parking (metered) on Albany St., just past the main part of campus. Otherwise see this list of public lots: http://web.mit.edu/facilities/transportation/parking/visitors/public_parking.html
