Steps for Access and Use

Step #1: Permits and Fees

Ensure you have:

[-] A CoE permit (blue, 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.


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

Note: College of Engineering faculty and staff are not required to pay the materials fee, however, they must have a CoE permit. 

Step #2: Talk to Student Staff to Determine Which Equipment is Needed for Your Application

Find a Makerspace student staff member at the check-out window (ring the bell if needed).

Step #3: Only You Should Use the Equipment

The equipment is for your use only; do not check something out for someone else.

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

All equipment must be returned by the end of the business day. Please clean/return it the way you found it.
