Mapping MIT Room by Room
The Facility Information Systems (FIS) team maintains and reproduces the geographic and building information presented in the MIT campus map. The department also created an underground tour map and a seasonal garden tour map in conjunction with the MIT Activities Committee.
Facilities Archives is a repository of building drawings and plans dating from the original Cambridge campus buildings begun in 1913 to contemporary structures by renowned architects.
Building information provides inventories of the buildings and rooms that are used daily for academic, residential, or support activities. This information includes gross area breakdowns, room inventory definitions, how buildings are numbered, and more.
Floorplans are available to help departments, labs, and centers plan for change, pinpoint repair or installation points, or reallocate space. For security reasons floorplans are available only to on campus MIT community members.
CAD guidelines (PDF) are issued to promote the development of AutoCAD drawings suitable for use in the Department of Facilities CAD environment. CAD documentation submitted to MIT by Architects, Engineers, Contractors and other consultants must conform to these guidelines.
The MIT Design Standards documents describe MITís expectations for new construction and renovation projects and was developed for use by all architects, engineers, and contractors working with MIT, as well as MIT construction project managers. The MIT Design Standards consist of two volumes: Thematic Folders and Specification Divisions. Architects, engineers, and contractors working on MIT construction and renovation projects must comply with the requirements outlined in these standards.
