Events sponsored by MIT departments, labs, centers, and student organizations are now permitted. On-campus events sponsored by outside entities (space rentals) are not yet permitted.

Off-campus events are permitted and must follow the local guidance of the event venue.

For events in MIT residence halls, please refer to Division of Student Life guidance for undergraduate and graduate student residents.


Attendee registration is required for all events that invite or include non-MIT visitors; for contact-tracing purposes, all attendees at such events must provide their name, contact information, and voluntary information on their vaccination status. This registration process must be managed by the event sponsor, and visitor access for events must be managed as described in the visitor policy. All attendees must wear well-fitted face coverings while at indoor events on campus.


Events should not include any buffet-style serving. Food must be provided in single servings, and all food items must be individually wrapped. Food policies are subject to change over time. In addition, events should follow good general hygiene practices such as providing hand sanitizer and encouraging hand-washing for attendees.
