Visitor Information

MIT and WHOI welcome applicants interested in applying to the MIT/WHOI Joint Program, although no visit is required for application or admission to the program. If you wish to meet with faculty or students, please email the Joint Program in advance so we can assist in arranging appointments. Be sure to state your research interests, include your CV, 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.

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.
