UROP Office Staff


UROP Office staff members support the MIT Community on all matters related to UROP.  Whether it is helping students identify UROP projects, navigate application processes and maximize experiences, or supporting faculty and departments on UROP-related administrative issues, we are here for you.

The UROP Office is located in Room 7-104, but will be closed until at least January 2021. However, UROP staff are available Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm EST (except on Institute Holidays or Closings) and can be contacted at urop@mit.edu or 617-253-7306. Virtual appointments are always available to students.
