Welcome to MIT, Class of 2026! We are excited to welcome you to the Institute at Orientation!

During and leading up to Orientation, you will explore academic options, learn about MIT Residence Life and other student life programs, and meet your Orientation Leaders and new classmates. Orientation includes Pre-Orientation Programs (FPOPs) offered right before the official beginning of Orientation. You’ll also register for your first semester of classes and participate in various special orientation events and programs designed to introduce you to life at MIT.

The 2022 Orientation Schedule is on Guidebook. Please download here: New Student Orientation Events run from August 28 – September 2.

Be sure to check your MIT email for important communications and reminders we send over the summer. We only send messages to your MIT email account, so see Getting Started with IT for students for details on accessing your MIT email.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Orientation Office at or call 617-253-6771. We are available between 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. 

We look forward to meeting you!
