Step #1: Permits and Fees – 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.
Note: College of Engineering faculty and staff are not required to pay the materials fee though they still must have a CoE permit.
Step #2: Talk to Student Staff
Find a Makerspace student staff member (they’re wearing a black apron). Tell them that you want to check out a mechatronics item at the checkout window.
