Permit Upgrades

Step #1: Permits and Fee

Ensure you have:

[-] A CoE permit (Lab Orientation, red OR green is sufficient) and have paid your materials fee for this semester. Our student staff are required to swipe your ID every time to verify.

or

[-] A valid M-Pass. You must show our staff your physical M-Pass and wiscard.

Step #2: Go to the Check-Out Window

Check in with the front desk staff, and head to the check-out window. If the equipment you need requires your PI to send us an email, please take note of that.

Step #3: Only You Should Use the Equipment in the Makerspace, unless you have a note from your PI. 

The tool/equipment is not to be taken out of the Makerspace (2nd floor of Wendt Commons).

The tool/equipment is for your use only; do not check something out for someone else.  If you need help using the tool feel free to ask our student staff for a quick lesson or refresher.

Step #4: Return the Equipment When You’re Done (By End of Day)

All of the tools/equipment must be returned by the end of the business day, unless otherwise agreed upon.
