Using the Innovation Lab

RESERVATIONS: Whether you are an instructor looking for a unique space in which to hold your class or a student seeking a place to work on collaborative group projects, the Innovation Lab is available to you. All reservations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to faculty, staff, and students from the Brooks College. To reserve the Innovation Lab, please email, using "Innovation Lab Reservation Request" as your subject line; include the date, start time, end time, and purpose of your requested reservation. All reservation requests must be placed one week before the requested date/time; there are also a limited number of spots available for weekly classes, so be sure to get your requests in early. If you would like to reserve the Lab for a time within the next two business days, please call The Office for Community Partnerships and Student Professional Development at 616-331-8229.

DROP-IN USE: Interested in using the Lab but forgot to make a reservation? Or perhaps your groupmates just agreed on a meeting time...and that time starts in two hours? You are in luck! As long as there is not an existing reservation scheduled in the Lab, it is open for use by anyone. Check the schedule below or on the Innovation Lab door for availability. 


Storage is available on a first-come, first served basis in either the flat file cabinet or the large storage cabinet. Please be sure to clearly label your work with your full name and contact information (phone number and email address). Any work left behind after finals week each semester will be discarded unless prior arrangements have been made.
