Instructions for getting to the MIT campus can be found by clicking here.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering is spread across several buildings on the main campus, with a central focus in Building 3. The department headquarters are located in Room 3-173 at the intersection of Building 3 and Building 1. Building 3 may be found by entering through the main entrance at 77 Mass. Ave., passing through the main lobby (Building 7) into the "infinite corridor", and turning right at your first opportunity.

Room numbers for ME faculty and staff may be found under People. At MIT the first part of a room number indicates the building, the second is the room number.

If you want to locate other MIT features, a "zoomable" interactive campus map and a printable (pdf) campus map are available.
