To safeguard the health and well-being of our entire community, MIT requires anyone who routinely accesses campus buildings to be tested for COVID-19, complete safety training, and comply with MIT, state, and local policies and guidelines. MIT created the Covid Pass application to help community members comply with these requirements.

Start here

  1. Get Covid Pass. Visit or download the MIT Atlas mobile app for iOS 13+ or Android 7+.
  2. Get tested for COVID-19 at MIT Medical.
  3. Use Covid Pass to complete your requirements. Learn more.

Note from DAPER for students living off-campus: Students who are living off campus who do not have access to campus buildings for academics or research, or who only have access to MIT Medical testing facilities, may request access to DAPER facilities by submitting this form. Once eligibility is confirmed, the student should follow the directions received via email from the Covid Pass application.

Use Covid Pass each day you need to be on campus

  1. Check Covid Pass for incomplete requirements. Conditions may change; Covid Pass will indicate if there are any requirements you need to complete.
  2. Submit your health attestation at least 30 minutes before you plan to enter a campus building or 30 minutes before your current Covid Pass expires. NOTE: Residents in on-campus housing must submit a health attestation every morning.
