Visiting the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is easy. Simply complete the below form and someone from OSC will contact you to schedule your visit. We ask that the tour request form be submitted at least two weeks in advance. Depending on group size and topic content, visits can last anywhere between 1 - 2-1/2 hours. When scheduling a visit, please be sure that your group includes a minimum of five people in a group.
Most visits primarily consist of a lecture-style overview of supercomputers and what we do, with a very short 'tour' component to see part of an old supercomputer. Some visits can include a longer tour to see OSC's current supercomputers in operation, which reside in a nearby data center accessible only by vehicle. Such datacenter visits have limitations on the number of attendees and require everyone to go through airport-style security screening.
Again, thanks for your interest in OSC. We look forward to hearing from you and having you visit our facilities!
