Directions & Parking

We are located in the Gymnastics Room (W31 140) at MIT's duPont Gymnasium, on the corner of Massachusetts Ave. and Vassar St., in Cambridge, MA.  We are very easy to get to by both car and public transportation.

NOTE:  The actual address of duPont Gymnasium is 120 Massachusetts Ave., however you must enter the facility through the Zesiger Sports & Fitness Center at 120 Vassar St.

MIT duPont Gymnasium: Enter through Zesiger Center, 120 Vassar St., Cambridge, MA 02139


MBTA - Bus:  Take either the #1 or CT1 bus to the stop at MIT (77 Mass Ave. for North-bound, and Albany St. & Mass Ave. -or- 84 Mass Ave. for South-bound), or the CT2 to the Mass Ave. @ Vassar St. stop.

MBTA - T:  Take the Red Line to either Kendall Sq. (about a 12-minute walk down Vassar St.), or to Central Sq. (about a 15-minute walk down Mass Ave.).

Please check the MBTA's website for schedules and routes.

Driving: To get customized driving directions, just plug our address into your GPS.  Be aware though that driving (and parking) in Cambridge and Boston during rush hour can be not-so-great, so taking public transit is recommended if possible.


You can drive, and there is parking, however, depending on when you're coming 
(i.e. time of day and day of week)
, driving may be slow and parking may be limited and/or not free.  Parking options are: 
  • 139 Mass Ave. Visitor Lot - A small parking lot diagonally across the street from the gym (by the Bank of America ATM) at 139 Massachussetts Ave. that is open to the public (despite what the sign on the Parking Attendant's booth says), but is unfortunately not that big (max capacity of about 50 cars). (Note that the back area of lot is still part of the lot and is available for parking, but also that sometimes there are special events at the campus that close down the lot from being open to the public, however this is relatively rare.)
    Cost: Free from 4:30p-12midnight on weekdays and all weekend long (w/ fees ranging from $8/hr to max $26/day from 7a-4:30p)
  • The West Garage - Unfortunately, the West Garage, located at 119 Vassar St. directly across the street from the entrance to the gym, is now permanently CLOSED.  MIT is tearing it down to build more dormitories.
  • Metered parking - Along Mass Ave., Vassar St.*, and Albany St.
    Cost: $0.25/12 minutes, max of 2 hours, Mon - Sat 8a-6p; free after 6p and on Sundays.
    * The meters along Vassar St. in front of the West Garage are our temporarily out of commission 8a-6p during the construction on the site.
  • Cambridge Resident Parking - The nearest Cambridge Resident permit parking is on Main St., between Windsor St. and Portland St., on the west-bound, north side of the street.
Bike: There are bike racks located near both entrances to the MIT Athletic Center (i.e. near the blue arrows and the purple arrows in the map below).

More information about directions and parking can be found on the MIT Rec Sports webpage for Parking & Directions, along with this direct link to their Visitor Parking Map.
