Campus access for MIT community members

Vaccination and attestation

All MIT faculty, staff, and students must be up to date with Covid-19 vaccinations or have an approved exemption in order to work, live, and study on campus. In addition, all eligible MIT students, staff, faculty, and affiliates must receive a Covid-19 booster in order to maintain access to MIT buildings. See MIT’s vaccination policy for more details.


Members of the MIT community who are in Covid Pass and compliant with vaccination requirements can access campus buildings through any access point they used before Covid. See MIT’s Quick Guide to Returning to Campus for more information.

Campus access for visitors

Visitors are welcome to campus and must follow all MIT Covid policies while on campus. Visitors are guests coming to MIT to attend a meeting, repair equipment, tour campus or a lab, pay a social visit, drop off a catering order, etc.

Vaccination and testing

In order to access MIT’s campus and MIT-sponsored events via the Tim Tickets system (MIT’s visitor pass system), invited visitors and event attendees must provide contact information and attest to being up to date with their vaccinations against Covid-19 or having a religious belief or medical condition that prevents them from receiving the vaccine. Tim Ticket users who are eligible for a booster vaccination must also attest to having received the booster shot.

All other campus visitors and attendees of MIT-sponsored events are strongly encouraged to be up to date on their Covid-19 vaccinations, including a booster shot for eligible individuals, unless they have a religious or medical exemption.

Visitors are not required to have a negative Covid test before coming to MIT’s campus.
