The club sports program is open to the following categories:
- MIT undergraduate or graduate student
- MIT alumni
- MIT faculty or staff member
- Spouse of any of the above
- Cross-registered student [must meet cross-registration criteria and obtain facility access]
Clubs may have additional restrictions. For instance, they may compete in leagues that are limited to undergraduates, or to a particular gender. Contact individual clubs for details.
COVID modification: because campus is de-densified for Spring 2021, in-person club sports participation will be limited to residents living on campus as well as students approved to be on campus for academic purposes.
Varsity athletes may not participate on a club team in the same sport. This pertains to: Rowing, Tennis, Men’s Soccer, Men’s volleyball, Women’s Soccer and Women’s Volleyball.
All participants must have a valid MIT ID card printed by the MIT card office identifying their affiliation, and a current athletics membership. Membership is free for MIT students; other affiliates need to purchase a DAPER membership or day pass to enter the facility. DAPER members that do not otherwise fall into one of the above categories are NOT eligible for club sports.
All participants must also have health insurance meeting Massachusetts’ Minimum Creditable Coverage (MCC) standard. Medical coverage is a condition of enrollment at MIT, so all MIT students should already meet this requirement.
