Neighborhood Reservation Application (NEIGHBORS)
The Neighbors Reservation Application
Neighbors is a web application developed by TIG to help reserve a spot in CSAIL neighborhoods during MIT’s COVID-19 restricted building access.
Use of this web app by all participating members of your research group is important–– (i) it allows people to reserve time-slots for space in your neighborhood on any given day to avoid overcrowding, and (ii) most importantly, it allows CSAIL to provide required space utilization data to MIT to document our compliance with MIT and Massachusetts mandates.
Please note Neighbors application is currently for CSAIL use only, and it should be used in conjunction with MIT’s COVIDPASS system. If you first do not have approved access through MIT COVIDPASS your MIT ID will not allow you into the Stata Center or CSAIL Space.
Using The Application
- Visit https://neighbors.csail.mit.edu (login with CSAIL Kerberos Account through the OIDC login page)
- Click “Neighborhoods” on the left hand side to show every floor in Stata Center.
- Choose the floor for the Neighborhood that you want to join.
- Once the floor page loads you should see the floormap image load at the top and you can find which neighborhood your lab space is in
- Scroll down and find the corresponding name for your neighborhood and click “Join”
- You should only have to join a neighborhood once and next time you visit the app the neighborhoods you have joined should show up on your homepage.
- After you joined the neighborhood you should see the time slots and seatings available on each day view.
- Select the day you want to reserve a spot and then click “Add to Booking” for each time slot you expect to be in the space for and the spot will be added to your cart.
- You can add other days and time slots to your cart before you confirm the booking.
- When you are done with your bookings scroll back up to the top of the page and on the left side click the “Review” button.
- You will be directed to the review page where you can confirm you have the right times and days and if everything looks OK you can press “Complete Booking”
- On your Neighbhors homepage you should see all the neighborhoods you have joined and any upcoming reservations you have booked.

The most authoritative source for information about the virus and its impact on MIT Campus operation can be found at MIT's Up-to-date information for the MIT community about COVID-19.
If your access has been approved to the building, there are new campus access points and paths that we must adhere to in Phase 2. Note these differ from the paths that have been used during the ramp down.
