Open Hours in the Fabrication Labs are times when students currently enrolled in classes scheduled in the Fabrication Labs can use the space outside of class to complete assignments. During Autumn Quarter 2021 those classes include LARCH 501 ADV, ARCH 332, ARCH 520.

We have two types of Open Hours:

Hand tools
Open Hours w/ space usage and hand tool usage only
M, W, Th 6pm-9pm, Supervised by student employees

  • Great time for project planning, measuring and making your material, as well as sanding and finishing and other hand tool usage
  • Hand tools include all non-powered hand tools and low risk powered hand tools such as drills, jigsaws, sanders.
  • Stationary power tools will not be accessible during this time (ie. table saw, bandsaw, mitre saw) as well as higher risk hand tools that require training such as (routers, circular saws, biscuit jointer, domino jointer).

  • Appointments are required.
  • Time slots are in one hour blocks. Please sign up only for what you need. These appointments will show up on your Google calendar. Decline an appointment if you no longer need it, so someone else can use it.
  • Time slots cap at 15 students. If you don’t see any slots available, that means all slots are taken.

Thank you for your time and patience as we work to restore open hours to students! This model is in process so please bear with us as we work out the kinks.
