The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a private research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Established in 1861, MIT has played a significant role in the development of many areas of modern technology and science. MIT’s 166-acre campus in the city of Cambridge spans approximately a mile along the north side of the Charles River basin. The campus is divided in half by Massachusetts Avenue, with most dormitories and student life facilities to the west and most academic buildings to the east. The bridge closest to MIT is the Harvard Bridge. The institute encompasses a number of major off-campus facilities such as the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, the Bates Center, and the Haystack Observatory.
