Covid Access

Covid Access is an administrative dashboard used by designated individuals within MIT departments, labs, and centers (DLCs) 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.

Important: Effective December 1, 2022, campus building access guidelines have changed.

If an individual will need access only to entrances open to the public, or a Tim Ticket invitation to register for a visitor ID will suffice, the person does not need to be registered in Covid Access. Visit the IS&T website for current building access details.

To use Covid Access, you must be designated as an access approver by your school, department, lab, or center. Covid Access is the administrative dashboard; community members use the Covid Pass feature within the MIT Atlas mobile application.
