For MIT event planners

This page lists resources available to members of the MIT community who have responsibility to plan an event for a department, School, organization, or group.

A few tips:

  • Ascertain whether your event needs to be registered.
  • Secure space as early in your process as possible.
  • For expert, on-campus assistance in planning an event or conference, talk with MIT Conference Services.

If you are part of an outside organization that would like to hold an event at MIT, please visit the page for non-MIT event planners.

An MIT Event Planners group, administered by the Events and Information Center, meets periodically to discuss relevant topics. The group's mailing list also serves as a resource to members: if you would like to join, please contact Lee Corbett (

In light of the campus space limitations connected with the renovation of E52, MIT event planners may wish to consider off-campus venues. Among these are MIT Endicott House in Dedham and Metro Meeting Centers on Federal Street in Boston; as other venues are reviewed by our community, we will list them here.

MIT event planners, have you seen the new AdminConnect resources? Among them are tips for getting underway with planning campus functions. The AdminConnect page offers an excellent outline and lists related resources.
