New to MIT

To help answer some of the many questions you may have, we’ve gathered some useful resources to help you adjust to your new life. Here you’ll find information about childcare and parenting, education and English studies, work and volunteering options, and other ways to get involved with the community you’ve joined. We've also included some key information about the MIT campus, and essentials like how to get around and where you can buy groceries.
