Energy Commons

A community space devoted to undergraduate energy students

The MIT Energy Initiative is proud to offer a community space devoted to undergraduate energy students on campus. The Energy Commons is open for use for active undergraduate Energy Club, Energy UROP, and Discover Energy FPOP students.

Located directly under MIT’s iconic dome in 10-063, the Energy Commons is a mixed configuration of educational and activity space. It is a blended, collaborative hub where energy students from all majors can gather, hold events, build teams, and pursue shared projects to sustain and expand the undergraduate energy community.

The Energy Commons features:

The space will enable students to work together beyond the classroom, fostering multidisciplinary, applied learning that is essential for developing the skills needed to address the world’s energy challenges. By nurturing a robust student network, MITEI hopes to create lasting interactive and engaging experiences for our energy students that will persist beyond graduation, helping them to become innovative energy leaders.

The renovation and furnishing of this unique space is supported by a generous donation from the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, which shares in MITEI’s vision and goal to enhance opportunities for undergraduate energy education at MIT.

If you are an active energy undergraduate student, you can reserve the flexible space for activities by requesting a reservation for the space. The small conference rooms are available on a first-come basis. Events booked in the flexible space will be posted on the monitor in the hallway outside of the space. Note: If an event is occurring in the flex space, such as a seminar, access to the small conference rooms may be restricted. For information about reserving the space, contact MITEI Education.
