Visiting RLE

The primary facilities of the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are located at the main MIT campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. RLE offices and laboratories are located in the Sherman Fairchild Complex (MIT buildings 36 and 38) and the Karl Compton Laboratories (MIT building 26). RLE researchers also can be found in the Bush Building (MIT building 13), MIT building 12, and the MacLaurin Buildings (MIT building 3), as well as off-campus at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston, Massachusetts.

RLE Headquarters and the office of the Director are located in MIT building 36. The main entrance to this building is at 50 Vassar St., Cambridge, Massachusetts, 02139–4307.

The Laboratory does not conduct any regular organized tours. If you have a particular interest in visiting an RLE research group or principal investigator, you may contact that group or investigator directly.
