Campus changes | Schedule and Plan

Campus changes

MIT community members, please note that limited parking will be available to guests attending the 2019 graduation festivities. We appreciate your understanding as we welcome the families and friends of our graduates to campus.

No road closures are planned on Thursday, June 6, but please avoid driving in the area if possible, as large crowds will be present near Killian Court. MIT Medical will be open during regular business hours on both Thursday and Friday, and parking will remain as normal.


Road closures and changes on Friday, June 7

Road closures from 9:30–10:45 am for the 2019 Commencement Exercises are described below: 

  • Massachusetts Ave from Vassar Street to Memorial Drive closed to both Boston and Cambridge-bound traffic
  • Amherst Street (west of Massachusetts Ave) closed both directions

Campus deliveries

To ease traffic concerns, delivery trucks will have no access to certain areas of campus and restricted access to the remainder of the campus on Friday, June 7. MIT will communicate this to its preferred vendors and to other vendors that routinely deliver to campus. Members of the MIT community are asked to plan accordingly.
