Checking Out Equipment

Patrons using headsets for development purposes can use them in the general area, after checking them out, upon making a special request.

Users may bring their own computers and phones, but are responsible for connecting their own hardware with the VR rigs. 


No food or drinks will be allowed in the space.

No other belongings are allowed within the VR/Visualization Studio as they are a tripping hazard. There are lockers you may use to store your belongings in the Scholars Studio. Please see the Scholars Studio Service Desk for use of these lockers while you are using the VR/Visualization Studio. 

Please be spatially aware and cautious while wearing VR/AR headsets and using the VR/Visualization Studio.  Artificial boundaries may be marked on the floor of the space. Scholars Studio staff will assist you in learning to use the space and being mindful of boundaries.
