MIT Campus Dining has several facilities across campus that can be reserved for events. These facilities include the Lobdell Dining Room (W20), Pritchett (50), The MIT Faculty Club (E52), the R&D Pub (32) and the Forbes Family Café dining area (32). The five House Dining Rooms (buildings W1, W4, W7, W71 and W79) are available for residential-based events outside the hours of operation of the dining halls or by special arrangement.
Reservation methods for these spaces vary:

Additionally, Next House Dining has a Private Dining Room (PDR) with Audio Visual capabilities that may be reserved through the Next House Manager. The Flowers Private Dining Room in Maseeh Hall may be reserved through Bon Appetit’s catering department.
