The Campus Activities Complex (CAC) provides a range of facilities and services designed to support the educational mission of the institute and the out-of-classroom needs of the community. CAC services include facilities management, event planning and support, retail, and contracted services.

This unit manages the Stratton Student Center, Kresge Auditorium, the Stata Center, MIT Chapel, Religious Activities Center, Walker Memorial, Wong Auditorium, Reservable Outdoor Space, and Barbecue Pits as centers for social, cultural, educational, religious, and recreational interaction. The Campus Activities Complex is a reporting unit within the Student Development and Support area of the Division of Student Life (DSL).
