What you need to know now

What do I need to do now?

  • A second Covid-19 testing facility has opened at the Johnson Athletic Center (W34), open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., that will more than double MIT’s testing capacity. You may choose to use the new facility or the trailers at MIT Medical each time you get tested.
  • Visit Covid Pass if you have questions about whether you need to sign up or update your testing.
  • Wear a mask, observe physical distance, and manage density to help to keep our community safe.

The basics now

New ID policy on campus

  • All community members are required to have their ID visible at all times when accessing campus spaces. Students and residents living on campus are not required to wear their ID when inside their residence hall.

Updated campus access points

  • Access to MIT academic and research buildings is only permitted through assigned access points. See the designated entries on the access point map. Just tap your MIT ID at the card reader at your approved entry point. And remember: Please do not hold open the door for others, since each person must use their MIT ID to confirm entry.
