Can I reserve equipment?

Currently, use of the equipment is a first come, first served basis.

When is the Innovation Floor Open?

Monday – Friday 8am to 10pm Saturday Sunday 12pm to 10pm

Summer: Monday – Friday 8am to 6pm 

Can I check out Tools or Equipment?

Yes!  With valid identification and Innovation Floor manager approval.

 Who owns the Intellectual Property (IP) created in the Innovation Floor?

You do!  As a general rule, students, faculty, staff and the community will own the things that they create. If you create something on your own time, using DU resources that are accessible and common to everyone, that creation belongs to you. Additionally, anything that you create as an ordinary part of class (essays, poems, presentations, etc.) belongs to you as well. If your work in class is part of sponsored research project, you will own your creations unless the sponsor of the research project has made a different agreement.
