Memorial Services


Our Condolences on your loss

CAC is here to help you in this difficult time.

In order to book a memorial, one of the two principals involved must have the following MIT affiliation: current student, alumni, faculty, staff member, or the child of one of these individuals.

CAC offers the following services for memorial services in the Chapel:

  • Scheduling/reservations
  • Site visit/walkthrough (includes recommendations/advice based on past services)
  • Room setup (furniture only, not linens and other catering needs)
  • Use of CAC furniture inventory as available
  • Arrangements for rental furniture (additional cost)
