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 (R4R) 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.

BeAM makerspaces will be closed in accordance with University holidays and breaks. BeAM will be closed during the following:

  • Labor Day (September 2nd, 3rd)
