Your taxi driver will most likely recognize our name and address. If the driver needs additional information, ask to be taken to the eastern end of the MIT campus just west of the Longfellow Bridge.
You can easily find MIT Sloan on a map of Cambridge; we are beside the Charles River, between the Longfellow and Harvard Bridges. Free parking is available in the MIT Sloan parking lot which is located behind building E53. (See above map.)
By Public Transportation
Boston's public transportation system–known as "the T"–was our country's first subway, and boasts a comprehensive grid of underground and surface trains, trolleys, and buses.
To find MIT Sloan, go to any subway station. Inside the station, look for the color-coded map of the subway system. We are located on the Red Line at the Kendall Square station. (See http://www.mbta.com for detailed maps and schedules.) When you come out of the Kendall Square station on Main Street, look for the bank sign at the corner of Wadsworth Street. Take a right on Wadsworth, cross the street, and walk half a block toward the Charles River, and you will reach the Sloan plaza. When you walk up the steps to the plaza, the Sloan library is straight ahead and the back entrance to 50 Memorial Drive is on your right.
Access to Sloan from Logan Airport on the T is just as straightforward. Take the free airport shuttle bus from your terminal to Airport Station, which is on the Blue Line of the subway. Take an inbound Blue Line train to the Government Center stop. Walk up one flight of stairs and take a west-bound Green Line trolley to the next stop, which is Park Street. Here, you can get on an outbound Red Line train by walking down one flight of stairs to the Alewife platform. The Kendall Square stop is just two stops away.
