Welcome to MIT

Whether you're curious about our campus, preparing for a real visit, or just peeking at this site's whiz-bang technology, we hope you'll enjoy your virtual tour of MIT. With a few clicks, you can traipse through our neighborhoods and stop to explore places that we think define us in some important or quirky way. And do visit again, as we'll be expanding the tour to include spots (especially west and north) that aren't on our current map.

Begin by choosing a neighborhood, such as the Infinite Corridor, which is the heart of the campus. The yellow dots yellow dot on the map indicate places of interest. Passing your cursor over a dot brings up its place name (such as Killian Court) while clicking on a dot delivers a picture and description to the lower frame. But the fun's just beginning! If you click on the picture or the link below it, you get a QuickTime VR or full-motion video of the site. For best results, we recommend you use the Quicktime plug-in. (Unix users: If you have a QuickTime-capable helper application, you will be able to view the full-motion video on this tour, but not the QuickTime VR.)

Have fun! If you need a little help along the way, you might check the technical specifications and useful hints at How to tour or drop us a line at vrtour@mit.edu. And if you're so fascinated by the tour that you've just got to learn more, you can plan a campus visit or talk to the Admissions Office about an extended sojourn in our wonderland on the banks of the Charles.
