STUDENT 24/7 ACCESS

Current MIT students may request to have ID card access to the Trust Center in E40-160 beyond our normal school-year operating hours (Mon-Thur 8:30 am – 8:00pm & Fri 8:30 am – 5:30pm). Please allow 24 – 48 hours for your access request to be processed and ID card to be activated.

Request 24/7 Access

Before booking a room:

  • Will your meeting occur before 8:30am, after 5:30pm, or at any time on a weekend or Institute holiday? Our doors are locked during those times, so if you will need the door unlocked, please request access at least one day in advance.
  • Will you have a phone or video call? Please add 15 minutes before and after your reservation for setup and spillover time.
  • Will you be hosting an event? Please add sufficient setup and breakdown time to your reservation. We recommend 30 minutes before and after.
  • Will you be using 175 & 175A (Testa South and North) as one meeting room?
    • Add 30 minutes to the beginning and to the end of your reservation for setup and breakdown time.
    • Add the phrase “wall open” to the “Purpose” line of your reservation.
    • If any part of your reservation takes place after 5:00 pm or before 9:00 am (including setup/breakdown time), or on a weekend or Institute holiday, please email trustcenter@mit.edu so we can ensure the wall between the rooms is opened and closed as needed.
  • Will you have food delivered? Please make sure that your reservation includes the person’s name that the restaurant delivery person will be asking for, otherwise, if they arrive early (as often happens), we will be unable to determine whether the delivery is meant for a meeting in our space.
