Scheduling Tours and Hosting Events


We are delighted to support classes, meetings, conferences, and group tours. Our facilities are primarily available for mission-related activities, with priority given to HMSC academic programs, OSU, and co-located partners. However, on occasion, we host events for outside groups. Below are details for scheduling tours, reserving rooms, costs and policies for holding events on the HMSC campus.


Tour our world-renowned marine science center. Whether you are a prospective OSU student, researcher, or community group, we look forward to sharing the fantastic collaborative work performed here on the HMSC campus. 

To help us understand your needs, please provide visit details, including potential dates, the number of visitors, and your area(s) of interest.

Note: We strive to accommodate all tour requests, but we may need to decline due to conflicting events.
