Many Making Center spaces are open, with adjusted availability, for the Academic Year 2020-21. At this time, general campus access is available to all Parsons students regardless of program or year level. Students accessing campus for the first time must be tested prior to their space reservation date. Given distancing requirements, students are limited to one building for reserving space, and orientations for the Spring 2021 semester will be offered on a very limited basis. In most cases, students will retain their Spring 2020 authorization status.
On Campus Space / Equipment Use
Open work space in the Making Center is currently accessible for all Parsons students who have submitted the required testing. The use of most on-campus tools and equipment requires prior orientation or training.
Equipment Checkout (Contactless)
Equipment and tool checkouts are available for off-campus use for up to 7 days (with appropriate orientation and training). You may be required to complete an online consultation with a technician beforehand.
Submission-Based Project Pick-Up
For the 2020-21 academic year, students may submit work digitally to be produced for pick-up in select labs, shops, and studios. Services include printing, laser cutting, 3D printing, CNC, and more.
