While primarily intended for student use, the Fabrication Shop is open to alumni depending on availability.

The shop use fee of $80 will be waived for alumni the second Saturday of each month between the hours of 10 am and 3 pm (except for blackout dates during midterms, finals, and thesis). Fee exemption is on the basis of personal use only; any client-based or paid work will require the regular shop use fees.

Use is determined by the shop manager on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations must be made in advance to rodney_rojas@sciarc.edu. The shop user must assume responsibility for personal liability and related insurances. Proof of current medical coverage is required. If your graduation date is two years or more from the present date, you will be retested on shop safety protocols.
