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.
To order indoor and outdoor event setup from Facilities go to Service Requests in Atlas. Below is a list of some of the services available. Please order at least three days in advance.
Students may order items by contacting Facilities Customer Service Center.
