Event Support with TCIT Media Services

TCIT Media Services is equipped to provide professional audio/video equipment & trained technical support staff for various types of events being held at TC.

Event spaces at Teachers College are intended for TC events and events sponsored by TC community members, organizations, programs, and offices. External requests through the academic year need to be affiliated or sponsored by TC departments and/or faculty. External requests during the non-academic year will be accommodated based on the academic mission of the programming.

All TC organizations requesting Event Services & equipment (i.e. microphone/mixer/PA configurations, multi-room conferences, large-scale video conferencing, and other tech intensive programs) for TC's event spaces, classrooms, or public spaces will require the hiring our trained technical support staff. Event reservations must include a minimum of 1 hour set-up & breakdown time based on the technical difficulty of your set-up and location of your event. Premium Event technician rates may apply to events & programs that occur outside of our office hours, Holidays or TC Closure days.
