[O]n Friday, October 23, President Barack Obama will be visiting MIT, where he will deliver an address in Kresge Auditorium on clean energy after meeting some of the MIT faculty and students whose work centers on energy. The President will be joined by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick.
Kolenbrander elaborated on some logistics (which shouldn't affect the non-campus area significantly):
The visit will begin in the late morning on Friday and end in the early afternoon. Of course, any Presidential visit to MIT involves security measures that may cause significant interruptions to the ordinary life of the campus. On Friday morning, please expect vehicle and pedestrian traffic to be disrupted on various parts of our campus... any further information about the day of the visit, will be made available [Wednesday] at http://web.mit.edu/events/presidentialvisit.
