Visitor Information

Visits are not required for application or admission to the program. If you wish to meet with faculty or students, please email the Joint Program. Please state your research interests, include your CV, unofficial transcript, dates of your availability, any time constraints and the parties you are interested in meeting with in your email. We will do our best to accommodate your request, but please note that faculty may not be available on the dates you wish to meet them.

Most offices and labs at MIT and WHOI are not open to the public, so you can see below for general tour information for both institutions. However, self-guided and guided tours of MIT are available to the general public without a reservation.

The two offices are approximately 80 miles from each other and approximately one and one-half hours apart by automobile or bus. The bus line that travels from Boston to Woods Hole is Peter Pan Bus Lines.
