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, 3D printing demonstrations, and project consultation on the ground floor in room G-7. 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, or drop by during open hours for an overview or demonstration.

The lab is currently equipped with five virtual reality workstations, three 3D printers, a vinyl cutter, 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!).


Workshops will return in the fall!

To schedule a one-on-one or group training session, please request an appointment.
