UROP Office Staff


UROP Office staff members monitor all MIT UROPs and are located in Room 7-104 (the first office on the left as you proceed down the Infinite Corridor from the 77 Mass Ave entrance). Consider Room 7-104 as UROP Central and feel free to visit us for help and advice regarding UROPs. For students who have never participated in UROP, UROP staff can provide assistance with finding that first UROP project.  Our office is open Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm (except on Institute Holidays or Closings). We have an open door policy, so no need to schedule in advance - please feel free to stop by!
