BeAM Hours

BeAM open hours have been set according to user data from last year, but we want to continue to improve our services. You can help us better understand UNC’s access needs by completing a brief survey.

BeAM’s new Reserved for Research and Entrepreneurial (R4R/E) program invites Carolina researchers to access any of our three makerspaces throughout the week for advanced making. During these times, BeAM will be open and staffed only for research-related work. As always, makers must be certified to use tools through our training program and may only enter BeAM spaces after completing orientation training.
