- Members will now have (almost) 24/7 access to the shop with the new key-less entry system. Members received their RFID badges that grant access all day (except between midnight and 5 a.m.). In addition, the shop has been modified to be more spacious and includes an extra bench. Please note that for safety purposes, cameras will be installed in the shop, too.
- Walk-in hours for non-members have changed. You can now get a tour 2:30-7 p.m. Tuesdays, 2-7 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. To make up for the shorter walk-in hours, if your tools break in the middle of a project and you need emergency access to tools or equipment, you can still have access to the makerspace outside of those hours by using the “booking” option on the website. That is a more formal way to schedule an appointment. You also can use the “booking” option if you would like to request particular training 1-on-1 or as a group, but cannot wait until the next scheduled class.
- Here are more ways to request access to the space or ask questions outside of open hours:
