Please have buses drop off students along Amherst Street (facing west). We recommend setting GPS to 32 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA to find the correct Amherst Street because there are two Amherst Streets in Cambridge.  Please note that Amherst Street is a one-way only accessible from Massachusetts Avenue.  Buses should then proceed to the parking lots marked here.

Buses should pick up students on Amherst Street at the conclusion of the awards ceremony in the evening.

Individuals or teams arriving at the tournament by car may park in any of the seven lots listed under “Parking at MIT without a Permit” near the bottom of this page.  Among those seven lots, the building 44/46 lot is closest to the main part of campus.
