HoToGAMIT (How to Get Around MIT – CIO Symposium Edition)

May 15, 2019


Finding Kresge
The Symposium takes place in Kresge Auditorium, 48 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02139. Kresge is well receded from Massachusetts Avenue and may be hard to see from the street. Please refer to the map on the logistics page. You can’t miss the tent in front of Kresge; the tent may be a better landmark.

Parking and Shuttle Bus
Unfortunately no parking is available directly at Kresge, click here for parking, public transportation, and shuttle bus options.

Registration Desk is in the Tent
When you arrive at the Symposium, please go to the tent outside of Kresge to sign in and get your badge and bag.

Lunch
Your lunch assignment is identified by the dot on your badge. Follow the signs to your selected lunch breakout based on the color of the dot. If you prefer a different lunch session, please go to the preferred lunch room and if space permits, you will be admitted in the order in which you arrived.

Luggage
If need be, you can store your luggage during the Symposium in the basement of Kresge Auditorium. As you enter Kresge from the street level, go down the stairs to the bottom level. The men’s room and the luggage room are on the left (women’s room to the right). Standard checkin processes apply, i.e. you’ll get a ticket for your luggage. The room will be manned to approximately 7:30 PM.

Gold Shirts
The Gold Shirt team will provide directions and answer your questions. You can’t miss them and don’t hesitate to use them.
