Classrooms / Maker facilities

The classrooms and maker facilities fall within the Hunt Library hours of operation.  IDeATe affiliates who have not earned their own access to a space can make appointments by emailing help@ideate.cmu.edu at least 1–2 business days in advance.

If you are not an IDeATe affiliate and wish to use the IDeATe facilities, check our Open Fabrication Hours.
