Open Lab at Hillman

A partnership between the University Center for Teaching and Learning and the ULS, the Open Lab at Hillman is a new space for virtual reality exploration and 3D printing demonstrations in Hillman Library's Digital Scholarship Commons. It's a satellite location of the Teaching Center's Open Lab, based in Pitt's Alumni Hall.

About the Open Lab at Hillman

Students, staff, and faculty are all welcome at the Open Lab, where you'll find support from staff who can provide training and expert guidance. If you are interested in using the Open Lab’s specialized equipment but haven’t before, please make an appointment for a basic training session with Open Lab staff (see Hours and Appointments on this page).

The lab is currently equipped with a virtual reality workstation, a 3D printer, and standalone VR headsets. We'll continue to develop the equipment available here, so check back (and let us know what you'd like to see!).



Join us on the first and third Tuesday of every month during the fall term for workshops on 3D Printing and 360 Video. For more details, and to register your spot, see the Open Lab at Hillman listings within the ULS workshops calendar.

Where to find us
