  • Bring your MIT ID and government-issued ID
  • Log into Borrow Direct via Touchstone. DUO authentication is required; please have your mobile phone set up with DUO.
  • Then you can go directly to the Harvard card office (Smith Center) to get your borrowing card.
    Smith Campus Center, Room 807, 1350 Massachusetts Ave.
    Phone: 617.496.7827
    Mon-Fri: 8am-5pm; Closed Sat, Sun, and university holidays
