Primary contact

Mystery Hunt staff needs contact details of one person designated as the primary contact, just in case we need to talk to someone on your team directly.

Help us understand your team better.

Team base

Note: Due to MIT policy, teams will no longer be allowed to solve in classrooms on campus from 1am to 6am each night.

We are no longer accepting requests for classrooms.

Team composition

In order to facilitate this, teams anticipating having a chance of winning the Hunt are strongly encouraged to have at least two student members.
