Living near MIT


About

Since its founding in 1861, MIT has been known for being on the cutting edge of science, math, and technology. The surrounding area has kept up with this industrious spirit, with a plethora of brand-new offices and apartment buildings popping up nearby in recent years. 

Just across the Charles from some of the most beloved parts of Boston, apartments near MIT offer the best of both worlds for renters looking for proximity to both Cambridge and Boston. MIT apartments range from modern to industrial, with both student- and family-friendly options. With Central Square and Kendall Square close by, there’s plenty to do and countless food and drink destinations to choose from, including bars, beloved local chains, and weekend brunch spots. Given the variety, restaurants near MIT are perfect for both busy folks on the go and diners looking for a sit-down experience. 

If the dozens of MIT restaurants and bars within walking distance are not enough, MBTA access can easily connect residents to the rest of the city by bus or subway. A quick trip across the Longfellow Bridge brings you to Boston neighborhoods like the Back Bay and Beacon Hill. Crossing the Harvard Bridge leads you straight to Fenway and Back Bay. The Charles River Greenway also passes right by campus, offering a beautiful running or biking route.

Buses and the T aren’t the only ways to get around the area. For those traveling by car, street parking at MIT can fill up quickly on weekdays, but there are MIT parking programs in place for students and staff, as well as a limited day lot for visitors. Off-campus, there are several garages and lots for those seeking to park for longer periods of time.

With easy access to everything Boston and Cambridge offer, MIT apartments are convenient for college students and young professionals alike.
