Note: The FASTEnER Lab will have limited hours/capacity during the Flex Week and Finals Week to allow some students to work on projects and assignments. One person will be permitted at each work station at a time. We encourage you to plan ahead to ensure that you will have your desired time slot, and to be considerate of others who may also need to use lab space during this period.
