Tim the Beaver

Tim the Beaver has served as MIT’s official mascot for decades. Integrating Tim into your communications can be a fun and engaging way to build campus pride and spirit.

Tim the Beaver is available in four poses. While the illustrations below are the official depiction of Tim — depicted in the likeness of the mascot costume — other variations are allowed. These illustrations were created in 2014 and refreshed in 2023.
