Viewing centers | Schedule and Plan

2018 MIT Commencement Exercises broadcast viewing locations

Viewing centers around campus will show a live video feed, with captions, of the Commencement Exercises.

Please note that Commencement is held outside rain or shine and that Killian Court is an open area with almost no shade. Indoor viewing is an excellent choice for those who may find it difficult to be seated outside for the duration of the ceremony.

For families who have more guests than tickets, the viewing centers provide an option for anyone who would like to see the ceremony live. The viewing centers are open to all.


How to read an MIT address: the number preceding the hyphen is the building number; the first number after the hyphen is the floor; the last two are the room. For example: 1-390 is Building 1, third floor, room 90.
