Student Center card-access hours cutoff is 9 p.m. over IAP

This IAP, the Student Center is card-access-only from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. This is a pilot by the Campus Activities Complex that moves up the cutoff for card-access hours from 11 p.m. during the semester to 9 p.m. during holidays, breaks, and IAP, according to Michael Foley, director of the CAC, in a statement emailed to The Tech.

Students, MIT community members, and authorized affiliates with a valid MIT ID can access the Student Center anytime. To make it easier to access the Student Center after hours, the CAC installed new card readers at several access points, Foley wrote.

The new pilot hours more closely align with other MIT facilities, such as the Stata Center, which requires an MIT ID for access between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., Foley continued.

However, student groups can work with the CAC to adjust card-access hours for special events.
