Welcome to MIT Institute Events

Our department is part of the Office of the Vice President and Secretary of the Corporation and comprises visitor information, Conference Services, Community Services, Commencement, and several lecture series.

The mission of Institute Events is to meet the information needs of the MIT community, campus visitors, and the public; to orchestrate and advise on issues of protocol; to distribute knowledge and best practices in event planning and coordination; to promote community within MIT and hospitality to campus guests; and to support conferences and direct events that sustain MIT’s global leadership in education, research, and innovation.

**MIT event organizers, please review this page outlining guidelines for planning in the time of COVID-19.**



The Institute is functioning under a Limited Access Plan (LAP) through the fall semester of 2020 and campus is closed to visitors at this time. Please see the Visitor Policy Announcement and find current information on MIT’s response to the challenge of COVID-19.
