You Will Find Us Here!

You will find us on the first floor in Murray Hall. Come through the brick arch in Venable Hall, and you will be in the courtyard between Venable and Murray Halls. BeAM is next to the Department of Applied Sciences in the complex that also houses Chemistry and the Department of Marine Sciences.

Your Training Sequence

So that you, as a student, faculty member, or staff member at UNC, can take full advantage of BeAM, you will need to participate in our series of training sessions. Each session will give you access to an area of BeAM, and also to subsequent sessions.

After taking the orientation, there are a number of training sessions you can participate in, so that ultimately you will be trained, and have access to, all of our Makerspaces and their tools.
