Parking Suggestions
Parking in Cambridge and Boston is generally not an enjoyable experience. Whenever possible, park your car at the hotel at which you are staying, and use public transportation to get to the MIT campus. If you must drive to the campus, there are both on- and off-street parking available. There are several commercial parking lots in Kendall Square, including a large indoor lot at the Marriott Hotel. If you were invited to campus and a visitor parking pass was given to you, you may park in the lots specified on the visitor's pass.
