Join Information Systems and Technology (IS&T) on February 8, 2017 as we celebrate the relocation of our Walk-in Service Center. Temporarily located in E19 for the last several months, the walk-in center returned to E17-106 last week and became the first tenant to occupy the new Atlas Service Center space. The IS&T walk-in center is open to MIT students, faculty, and staff from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

To introduce the MIT community to the new walk-in center, IS&T will hold an event there on February 8 from 1 to 4 p.m. Come by and get your laptop tagged, grab a YubiKey, learn about student job opportunities with IS&T, have some food, and enter our raffle!

Raffle!

IS&T is holding a raffle* on February 8 at our new walk-in center. Stop by E17-106  between 1-4 p.m. to enter for a chance to win one of the following:

  • First prize: Apple iPad Mini
  • Second prize: $100 Amazon gift card
  • Third prize: $50 Amazon gift card

If you are unable to make it during the event, you can enter the raffle by checking in with an IS&T consultant in the walk-in center during business hours that day, up until  4:30 pm.

Additional chances to win

Follow IS&T on Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, or Instagram and share our posts about the walk-in center relocation and/or the giveaway to receive an additional entry into the raffle.

Additionally, there are 50 specially marked 5.25-inch floppy disks strategically placed around the MIT campus.
