Storrs Lab is accessible to trained users within the College of Arts and Architecture. Under circumstances approved by the Lab Director or Manager, users from other departments can be trained to use the facility. These cases must be arranged with advanced coordination. The lab is open daily under the supervision of two full-time staff members and a handful of student technicians.
