Eating indoors is permitted in all campus buildings in spaces where eating was permitted pre-pandemic.

Food and drinks are once again allowed – and may be provided and consumed – at MIT-sponsored events and meetings, including gatherings held on and off campus.

Remember that people may have different comfort levels about eating in a group. If you’re planning a gathering with food, you could consider an event layout that allows those who prefer not to be around unmasked eaters/drinkers to participate (e.g., stationary furniture arrangement, separate areas for diners and non-diners, etc.

If you have questions about eating indoors, or any other Covid-related policies, please email
