MIT’s campus is situated in Cambridge, Massachusetts, which is right across the Charles River from Boston. Many of the Biology labs are located in Kendall Square, which is home to the greatest concentration of biotechnology companies in the world. Cambridge is also home to museums like the MIT Museum and Harvard’s Museum of Natural History, as well as outdoor spaces like the Alewife Brook Reservation, and an active music scene with multiple performance venues. New Hampshire’s hiking trails and scenic landscapes are less than 50 miles North, and Cape Cod’s beaches are just to the East.

There is a limited amount of parking available on campus and students may choose to apply for a permit (fees apply). MIT also hosts a car-sharing program on campus.
