Making Center Hours

All Making Center hours are contingent on University Building Hours.

In response to COVID-19, many Making Center (MC) spaces are open but have adjusted schedules and access protocols to adhere to New School health and safety policies.

The Making Center will be closed from Thursday May 13 – Monday May 31. Facilities will reopen by appointment only on June 1.

In Summer 2021 the Making Center will operate online and on-campus, by appointment only, Monday-Friday, with most on-campus spaces and resources available Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from Tuesday June 1 – Friday July 3o.

Most Making Center spaces will be closed the week of Monday July 5 – Friday July 9.

Specific hours of availability can be found on each Labs, Shops, and Studios page.

The Making Center will be closed Monday August 2 – Friday August 13 to repair and relocate equipment and reset and prepare spaces given updated Covid 19 policies and procedures for Fall that will be announced by the university on July 15.

Orientations for Making Center labs, shops and studios will begin the week of Monday August 16.
