Event Support

Media Services provides technical Event Support for the college’s three major lecture halls and public spaces. The preferred method to request support is to contact Kofi Asare, Media Administrative Assistant at x3822 or email

All TC and non-TC organizations requiring the use of the audio visual installations in the college's major lecture halls (Cowin Center, Milbank Chapel, and the Grace Dodge Room) must contract a Media Tech for A-V support (there’s a minimum hire requirement of 4 hours). If the event requires multiple microphones then a sound engineer will also be assigned (4 hour minimum). The A-V installations in these halls need experienced technicians to operate them. These facilities will not be available to the users unless prior arrangements have been made with Media Services. 

All special technical requests (i.e. additional microphone setups, multiple projection systems set-ups, Polycom video conferencing /web-casting, video/audio recordings, etc.) for TC's major lecture halls, classrooms, or public spaces will involve additional technical charges plus the standard hourly cost of hiring our technical staff. All TC organizations arranging for Event Support will need the approval of either an Academic Director, Program Coordinator or Supervisor so Media Services can process the budget transfer. For non TC groups all fees and tech charges will be invoiced. To view our technical charges and rental rates please click here.
