Named in honor of Arthur ’62 and Rebecca Samberg, MIT’s newest events venue is part of a comprehensive renovation of the historic Morris and Sophie Chang Building (E52), an art deco treasure located on Memorial Drive overlooking the Charles River. The Samberg Conference Center encompasses the sixth-floor space (formerly known as the MIT Faculty Club) and a 20,000 square-foot, glass-enclosed seventh floor. The Center, which features panoramic views of the river and the Boston skyline, is available to all members of the MIT community for meetings, events, and conferences. With a total of 11 spaces, the Center offers a variety of meeting room arrangements for groups of 10 to 400. Hospitality management company Restaurant Associates has been selected by MIT as the exclusive caterer for the Samberg Conference Center.
Arthur Samberg built a distinguished career in investment management as the chairman, CEO, and managing director of Pequot Capital Management. Prior to working in finance, Mr. Samberg was an aerospace engineer at Lockheed Martin—but he and Mrs. Samberg have been part of the Institute community for decades. A life member of the MIT Corporation, Mr. Samberg holds a bachelor’s degree in aeronautics and astronautics from MIT, a master’s degree from Stanford University, and an MBA from Columbia Business School.
