MIT International Students Association

About Us

The international community at MIT comprises about 10.12% of the undergraduate and 41.95% of the graduate student body. (For specific statistics refer to the International Students Office).

The International Student's Association at MIT works for and with MIT's international students, striving to promote cultural diversity on campus.

Although most of our members are international students, the ISA welcomes and encourages every MIT Student to join.


The ISA got recently re-recognized as an ASA club and has a renovated constitution: ISA Constitution


The ISA's main activities are aimed at expressing the large cultural diversity that exists at MIT.
  • Fun-filled trips around the Boston and New-England area for multicultural bonding
  • Delicious study breaks with those international snacks that remind you of home
  • An international showcase known as the iFair
  • An evening on the Charles in the magnificent iCruise
  • Many other things so visit frequently our news and events spaces for more information
