Meeting and Event Spaces
Collaboration by Design
We host our own courses and use the classrooms here that were strategically designed for flexibility, collaboration, inclusion, and transparency. Throughout SCD, the spaces can be rearranged to suit the experience: small conference space or lecture with many attendees; walk-through eavesdropping or open-air brainstorming.
Our goal is to tear down walls (literally and physically) to remove barriers for interaction and sharing of ideas. We hope just being here sparks new thoughts and partnerships. Bonus: No charge to reserve space (for campus-affiliated guests)
Who Can Reserve Spaces in SCD
- Anyone on campus who needs a flexible classroom that allows for greater collaboration
- RSOs and student teams who need space to meet regularly and access to design resources
- Groups who need space or lockers to work on their projects.
A valid University email address is required to reserve spaces and an active I-Card is required to check out any equipment. If you're part of the campus community, you can use anything in SCD for whatever you are working on.
