Event Spaces in Pomerene Hall
Tours and Reservations
TDAI's beautifully modern spaces in Pomerene Hall are available to rent by members of the public, university faculty and staff, and recognized Ohio State student organizations. Email TDAI Events today to discuss hosting your next gathering in this campus gem located next to picturesque Mirror Lake, or to request a tour. (Please allow two business days for a response.)
First priority for space usage is given to TDAI initiatives, including research community of practice meetings and seminars, TDAI pilot funding teams, TDAI foundational industry partners, and special events. Meeting spaces and labs are then made available to all TDAI faculty affiliates as available. Larger rooms may also be rented for special events. As a research facility, TDAI spaces may not be used as a study area for students or postdocs.
