During monitored times, you may ask a monitor to assist you with a machine. Otherwise, our tools are locked. The open work space is open to all Brown students 24/7.

Workshops begin promptly at the beginning of the shift. Our miter saw and table saw workshops are capped at 5 people; 3D printing, laser cutting, and track saw workshops are capped at 6; the other workshops are capped at 8. All are first come, first served - there are no sign ups. Please locate the on-duty monitors.


Sometimes we cannot staff all of these times so there may be gaps in the schedule; please double check the calendar.

We follow the Brown University calendar for openings. This means we are not open on holidays, breaks, or snow days. 

Workshops end at the start of reading period. Members without proper certification during reading and finals period will not be allowed to use associated machinery.

This calendar starts at 12PM. Please scroll down to see our hours, which start at 2PM.
