Rules, Policy, and Security

The Harvard Innovation Labs’ AR/VR Studio policies are intended to make sure everyone using the space is treated fairly and is respectful of one another and the equipment. The general purpose of the studio is to provide computer equipment and AR/VR tools in a secure, respectful environment to educate and help students take their ideas further, faster.

Reserving Equipment and Workstations

The AR/VR workstations can be reserved daily from 7 am to 10 pm, online or through the tablet located at each computer workstation. There is a 2-hour time limit for each workstation. Also, do not sign up for more than 4 hours of use in a 24 hour period.

Rules and Other Policies:

1. The AR/VR Studio is available to be used by full-time, degree-seeking Harvard students only.
