The studio will be open on a reduced schedule, with a very limited occupancy. A consultant or staff member will be available, and workstations will be cleaned after use.
The studio will only be accessible to those with card access to the space via the card reader on the entrance door. Those without access will not be permitted. Students, faculty, and staff can receive card access through our online orientation.
Orientations are required for card access, and will teach patrons how to properly handle equipment housed in the room, and the proper etiquette necessary to work in the studio safely and politely. Students, faculty, and staff can complete this orientation online on our canvas site.
KEEP ONE ANOTHER SAFE
All patrons must stay 6ft apart at all times. Workstations are staggered to accommodate this requirement. Please do not turn on any additional workstations, or sit adjacent to others.
The Duderstadt Center enforces a mask policy, which will not change upon entrance to the studio. Anyone who is non-compliant will be asked to leave and may have card access revoked.
THERE WILL ALWAYS BE AN INHERENT RISK INVOLVED WHEN PLACING SHARED EQUIPMENT NEAR THE EYES, MOUTH, EARS, AND NOSE.
You must disinfect your own headset before use. Consultants and staff will be in the space to clean as necessary and as best they can, but it is not safe to rely solely on this. Disinfecting alcohol wipes can be found at every accessible station, along with hand sanitzer.
If you are part of an at risk group for COVID-19, we cannot recommend using shared XR equipment.
You may only enter the space through the card reader door, and you may only exit the space through the double doors. These will be indicated via signage.
THE BEST WAY TO STAY HEALTHY IS TO STAY HOME
We have VR development equipment that can be requested for students, faculty, and staff that specifically need its capabilities for VR-centric projects.
We have a limited number of dedicated remote accessible workstations for development purposes.
