It could also have a 90 angle overhead (unseen) that attaches to the bow or the stern.

"Scotty seems to identify this gadget as the transporter. So what capacity does it serve? There is clearly more than one transporter station aboard the ship, but, presumably, all transporters utilize this column? Which also contains the abort control circuit for all transporter units?"
In my recent deck plan drafts for the engineering hull (http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=195496) you'll notice that the transporter room location from The Enemy Within is more or less at the same spot a few decks below the warp engine room to roughly allign with this column - in case that column were only responsible for this transporter I wanted to be on the safe side.
