Music quick guide: Equipment: Gaming Room

About the Gaming Room

The MIT Lewis Music Library gaming room (14E-114M) is available to current MIT community members and may be reserved ahead of time.  We also welcome non-MIT visitors during times when the room has not been reserved.  In addition to the Xbox (from which it derives its nickname,) the room offers group listening and viewing capabilities.  It is equipped with a VCR, CD and DVD players, comfortable chairs - and, of course, the Xbox.  Remotes, controllers and the like are available to check out from the Lewis service desk - just ask.


Hours: from library opening until 15 minutes before library closing; see MIT Libraries hours page.  We recommend making a reservation (see below).


How to Reserve Time in the Gaming Room
