Student Center Vendor Program

Vendors from the MIT community and elsewhere can reserve tables in the Student Center lobby to sell merchandise or promote a service or company.

Year-round, tables are available Monday through Friday from 9 am until 5 pm. The Stratton Student Center is located at 84 Massachusetts Avenue and is a high-traffic area for students, faculty, staff, and the greater Cambridge community.
