“The new courtyard is an ideal place to connect, exchange ideas, and gather new energy–the kind of mutual inspiration that is the soul of MIT.”
With a significant architectural and landscape redesign, the Building 14 courtyard offers a beautiful outdoor respite for the community, welcoming people from all walks of life at MIT—students, staff, and faculty from any school, any discipline—and beyond.
Thanks to the renovated courtyard and the new Courtyard Cafe, students now have new dining options in this area of campus, a central gathering space where they might encounter a community event or run into friends, and a relaxing retreat from the fast pace of life at MIT.
A revitalized community space in the heart of campus provides accessible, inclusive, open-air collaboration and social space.
