Reserving Collaborative Stations

  • A few CAEN computer labs and the Duderstadt Center provide collaborative stations, offering a spacious workspace situated around a computer with a large LED display, and connections for personal devices.
  • These stations may be reserved by students for limited blocks of time for group activities, such as course assignments, capstone projects, and student team development.
  • Some policies and regulations apply to all collaborative station reservation requests.
