What type of work is Co-Works for?
Co-Works prioritizes interdisciplinary making and cross-departmental collaboration. Neither a service provider nor suited for high-volume or large-scale production, instead we are best equipped to support initial stages of training, research, and experimentation. When you're ready to make multiples or scale up, we can refer you to appropriate local service providers. See a list of some providers here.
What are Co-Works open hours?
Hours vary each semester, but are generally 9am-11pm on Mondays through Thursdays, less on Fridays and weekends. Co-Works has reduced hours during crit weeks and is closed during school holidays and breaks. Co-Works does not currently have summer open hours.
