What to Bring/Wear

New England weather is notoriously unpredictable, so you should take a look at the weather forecast before packing.  In general, we recommend that you travel light and keep it casual.  Here’s a list of a few things you might not want to forget:

What Not to Bring/Wear

We recommend that students not bring expensive jewelry or electronic equipment that might be easily misplaced or lost when at MIT. 

There will be some free time in the evenings for students to attend campus events or even explore the Boston/Cambridge area.  If you are interested in purchasing souvenirs or other snacks outside of catered meals, you might want to bring some extra spending money. Because students will only be on campus for a few days, we suggest that students not bring more than $50.
