The Chipman Room is available for weekly or bi-weekly Departmental committee meetings or non-repeating academic- or research-oriented events such as a thesis defense or seminar. DMSE-related group meetings are permitted after 5pm and may only be reserved on a semester by semester basis. First priority will be given to Departmental related meetings and events. The Department reserves the right to cancel any reservation up until one day prior to the event if a pressing Departmental need arises. 

Reserving the Chipman Room does not include use of the adjacent kitchen, which is used by members of the DMSE community. However, tables from the Chipman Room may be stored in that space if needed, and cleaning supplies may be accessed. 

The normal Chipman Room hours are 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. Outside of these hours, the room is locked for security purposes. If you need to use the room outside normal business hours (DMSE-run events only) you will need to pick up a key from DMSE Headquarters (Room 6-113) a day in advance. If you will be using the room later in the evening, it is your responsibility to make sure that the room is locked at the end of your event and the key is returned the following morning. Failure to follow these rules may result in discontinued use of our spaces. 

DMSE Headquarters has an additional conference room (Room 6-103) which may also be reserved.

Please contact DMSE Headquarters at x3-3300 if you have further questions. 


Each DMSE grad is presented with a bronze medallion, in the shape of the MIT seal. The medallions are cast by a team of student volunteers who work in the DMSE Foundry.
