Events in the Inforum


The space is a popular venue for program and class exhibitions, and all kinds of academic and professional events.  Multiple airy and well-lit spaces over two floors make it ideal for multi-track events. A large space on the 4th floor is equipped with a fully-wired podium, a ceiling mounted sound system, projection screen, and comfortable seating for 100 people.
