The MIT Office of Insurance aims to ensure that MIT is adequately protected when vehicles are used in MIT-related activities and business.   

The Office is responsible for insuring more than 250 vehicles owned by MIT, and also ensures that the Institute is properly protected when non-owned or hired vehicles are used on MIT-related business.

The Office provides assistance on a wide variety of automobile insurance-related issues and questions, including vehicle accidents, best practices, and Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) and registration questions.  

It is extremely important to keep the Insurance Office updated on the selling/disposing of vehicles and on the purchase of new vehicles. No new vehicle should be operated until you have confirmed that appropriate insurance coverage is in force. (Failure to do so can result in significant fines that are the responsibility of the individual department, lab, or center.)
