During the COVID-19 pandemic, MIT Information Systems and Technology (IS&T) created a collection of applications to support Institute operations.

Community members use the MIT Atlas mobile application, available for iOS 13+ or Android 7+, to remain current with COVID-related requirements, access campus spaces, invite visitors, and access other common tasks including managing their digital MIT ID (and optional ID card) and registering Institute-related travel.

Stay up to date: Visit MIT Now for the latest policies and updates.

The applications include:

  • Covid Pass: Community members use Covid Pass ("Pass" within MIT Atlas mobile or covidpass.mit.edu on the web) to report a positive test result, having symptoms, or being a close contact of someone with COVID-19. Covid Pass provides guidance and enables symptomatic community members to access MIT Medical's on-campus COVID-19 testing program. View campus building entry points on this map.
  • Covid Vaccine: Community members use Covid Vaccine ("Vaccine" within MIT Atlas mobile or covidvaccine.mit.edu on the web) to comply with MIT vaccination requirements.
  • Tim Tickets: Tim Tickets is a visitor pass system enabling those who do not have an MIT ID and Kerberos account to enter doors on campus equipped with a Tim Ticket QR code reader. View Tim Ticket building entry points on this map.
  • Covid Access: Designated individuals for MIT departments, labs, and centers use the Covid Access administrative dashboard to register MIT affiliates – who are neither staff nor students – in the Covid Pass system. (Students and staff do not need to be manually registered using the Covid Access dashboard, as they are automatically enrolled in Covid Pass when they log in using Touchstone and submit an acknowledgement of terms and conditions.)

If you are experiencing technical issues with MIT Atlas mobile, Covid Pass, Tim Tickets, or the Covid Access system, email covidapps-help@mit.edu.
