Many Types of Events Require Different Needs
Facilities is one of several providers of event services on campus. The size and location of your event will effect who is best to help you with executing it. For example, some groups, like Campus Activities Complex (CAC), can help you with an event that is planned to take place in a certain area on campus. Their Event Planning Guide provides lots of information on holding an event at MIT.
Due to the limited amount of storage space on campus, many internal service providers are unable to supply you with a large amount of tables. In cases where you need more than a few tables, you may consider contacting one of MIT’s vendor partners. A few of those event providers are: Dame Associates, Festive Occasions and Peterson Party Center. These companies are listed as External Vendors in SAPweb.
Custodial Services provides assistance with events that are held in the Main Group, those buildings that are in the center of the campus.
Grounds Services supports events that are held outside.
To order services from Custodial Services and Grounds Services use the Building Services tab in SAPweb. Below is a list of some of the services available.
