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.

or

[-] 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.
