Carr Hall Lab Access (CR325)

Staff and Faculty using the labs for academic purposes such as teaching, testing or presenting, must obtain a security access card from the lab administrator - Damion Renner. A signup form needs to be submitted and a brief orientation session about the equipment and lab access will follow. Deposits are no longer required, however those who have paid a deposit are still eligible for a refund upon the return of an access card. Sessional Teaching Assistants and Research Assistants may also apply for an access card. Card holders are responsible for maintaining the security of the labs by monitoring equipment, supervising lab users, and ensuring proper opening and closing. Unreserved time slots between the hours of 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM will be allocated to public access hours for all students (OTAS - Open To All Students), and will be reflected on the lab schedule. Public access hours vary depending on course reservations and lab availability.
