Access for Students
For most student users, the OEDK will be accessible only via card access, with card access granted to those who have been authorized to use the facility. Student card access to the OEDK will be limited to students who sign a contract governing the appropriate use of the facility.
Only those students who fall into one or more of the above categories are eligible to request use OEDK resources such as the project work benches, the machine shop, the computational lab, conference rooms or the rapid prototyping labs.
Students using OEDK based resources that fall into other groups- such as the SEA laser cutter should make arrangements to access the OEDK during working hours where staff can grant access.
Students that are involved in a for-profit or non-profit organization, that it are outside the realm of a Rice University course or university-approved student organization/club, MAY NOT use the OEDK resources to benefit that project or organization.
To obtain access, you must review Safety Guidelines and THEN complete the OEDK Safety Quiz.
