Catering and Event Needs

Hosting an Event at the Kilachand Center

If you would like to reserve a room (either on the first floor or any of the upper floor conference rooms), please reach out to Dave Michaels for the Biological Design Center or Jessica Priestley for the Center for Systems Neuroscience.  You may also contact

Any event that occurs in one of our first floor conference rooms and either requires a setup change or includes catering MUST have a Facilities Service Request (FSR) submitted at least one week in advance.  Please reach out to your lab manager or with any questions.  Scheduling a walkthrough of the space is highly encouraged if this is your first time hosting an event here.

Audio/Visual Support

For technical support, Learning and Event Technology Services (LETS) can be reached at

The Kilachand Center makes every effort to provide cords, adapters and other necessary peripherals. However, we cannot guarantee that all equipment is functional or present at the time of your event, nor will there be a dedicated Kilachand Center Operations staff member on site and available to assist. We highly recommend contacting LETS at or 617-353-3227 to discuss your A/V needs, as well as scheduling a tech dry-run before the day of the event.
