Q: Do I need an MIT ID?


Yes, you will need an MIT ID. If you are a student, your MIT ID will be sent to you in your student packet. If you are an employee, you will be issued an MIT ID by Human Resources. In both cases, you will need to take a picture ID to the MIT Card Office to have your picture ID card created.

To get help finding out your MIT ID number, you can contact the Business Liaison Team by emailing or by calling 617-252-1177. You will need this number when you request a Kerberos ID (Athena User Account) and when you get MIT certificates.

If you are neither an MIT employee or student, the person who will be supervising your activities using MIT facilities will need to arrange for you to get both and MIT ID number and a Kerberos ID. See Stockanswer #6539, How to Start Before Your Work/Study Begins.
