Do I have to use a particular caterer for my reception?
No, however, use of an off-campus caterer can incur an additional $200 fee on top of the room rate. Off-campus caterers must provide proof of $1 million in liability insurance before operating at MIT. There are no kitchens available in CAC buildings. All cooking must be done off-site (except outdoor BBQ).
Is parking available?
The Chapel Turnaround can park up to 10 cars (double-parked) and is included with the Chapel rate when available. It is not automatically extended for a reception, so please inquire for availability. To inquire about renting a nearby parking lot on campus please contact the MIT Parking Office at 617.258.6510 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
How far into the future may I book my wedding date?
Currently we are booking weddings through early August 2020.
What is the capacity of the MIT Chapel?
The Chapel normally seats 114 people; extra folding chairs can be brought in to accommodate up to 140 people.
Does our wedding have to be of a particular denomination to take place in the MIT Chapel?
No, weddings in the MIT Chapel can be performed by a justice of the peace. Out-of-state clergy must register with Massachusetts. If you do not belong to a particular denomination and are unsure how to proceed please contact the Chaplain to the Institute, email@example.com to discuss your proposed wedding ceremony.
