What to know about your visit to the Atlas Service Center

Before your appointment

  • You must complete Section 1 of Form I-9 prior to your appointment at the Atlas Service Center.
  • If you need to reschedule, please do so at least 24 hours in advance.
  • Please make sure to bring your appropriate supporting documents to your appointment.
  • If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, do not attend your appointment. Please notify us at I-9@mit.edu that you cannot attend your appointment. You should also notify your supervisor.

At your appointment

  • Please be on time for your appointment at the Atlas Service Center in E17-106 (map and directions).
  • IMPORTANT: The front door entrance to E17 is locked. When you arrive at E17 building entrance, call 617-253-3000 to let us know you're here. Atlas staff will let you in.


  • Be sure to bring your supporting documents.
  • For safety reasons, do not bring any guests to your appointment. If you need an accommodation, please contact I-9@mit.edu.
  • Face coverings are optional at the Atlas Service Center. If you choose to wear a mask, you may be asked to remove it briefly for facial identification; there is a plexiglass barrier between you and the I-9 representative.
  • Show your photo identification at the service desk outside of E17-106.
  • You will be instructed about where to wait for the I-9 representative, based on social distancing guidelines.
  • You will be called by an I-9 representative to complete your Form I-9.
  • The I-9 representative will login to the system and review your completed Section 1.
  • The I-9 representative will ask you to provide your original supporting documents. The representative will then complete Section 2, certify the Form I-9, and submit the Form I-9 to E-Verify.
