Restricted-access labs

In addition to the labs listed above, there are also research labs, class-related labs, and special-project labs. Access to restricted labs is handled by the affiliated departments.

Lab Closures

We make every effort to ensure that the labs are open during the posted hours. However, we may be forced to close one or more labs due to class lab reservations or unforeseeable circumstances. Check the posted calendars outside of the labs and check out the CAT news page and CAT twitter for alerts and important notices.
