What is How To Get Around MIT?

How To Get Around MIT is a comprehensive guidebook to MIT, its campus and history, academic and recreational facilities, and life in the greater Cambridge/Boston area, produced as a non-profit service by volunteer MIT students, alumni and community members. We do our best to design it both to welcome all new members of the MIT community, and to act as a reference resource for those who have already settled in here. We aim to cover everything from issues that international students may face, to information about renting an apartment or buying a car, to restaurants, movies and sightseeing in the area. The book is also an MIT tradition that goes back over 30 years and an officially recognized MIT student activity.
