Welcome to the Thirsty Ear Pub!

Located within MIT's Ashdown House, we are the premiere graduate student Pub at MIT. Graduate student-led and graduate student-staffed, the Thirsty Ear Pub is the only dedicated space for graduate student programming at MIT. With regular programming Monday through Wednesday as well as occasional special programming on Thursdays and Fridays, the Pub is the best place for graduate students to unwind after a long day researching in the lab and dealing with advisors. Trust us, we get it...we are graduate students just like you after all! Come on down and say hi!

Reserve the Pub!

MIT affiliates can reserve the Pub for both private and MIT functions on Thursdays and Fridays! Whether it is a departmental mixer, cultural festival or a birthday party, the Thirsty Ear is the perfect place to make your event a reality.
