If you are local to NYC and would like to request a space reservation, please follow the building selection and testing steps outlined the access protocol carefully, and schedule a technician consultation using the link below.
During your consultation, the technician will speak with you about your project, direct you to the best resources to support your work, and assist you in requesting your space reservation at getspace.newschool.edu. The technician can also help you reserve additional tools needed for your days on campus via Tool Checkout.
