Schedule an appointment

Starting Fall 2020 as part of our Make Ready plan, the AOC is moving to online only reservations for laser cutting, 3D scanning, computer lab use, 2D scanner use, and staff consultations. You cannot enter the AOC without an appointment so you must use Acuity for making appointments.

To use Acuity, use the embedded page below and select the resource you wish to use. Note, some resources have longer lead times than others. After making the appointment, you’ll get an email with information about your reservation.

When it comes time to use your reservation, please wait as close to the start time as possible to prevent crowding of the AOC. If you appointment is at 1pm, consider entering the AOC at 12:58pm. When you enter, talk to the lab monitor in the front lab, show your ID, and state why you are there. Staff will direct you to the resource you have reserved. Be aware that start and stop times are strictly enforced. If your reservation ends at 1:30, you must be wrapped up and ready to leave exactly on time so the next user can start on time.

If the embed below does not work, you can also find the schedule here: https://saicscheduling.as.me/3dscanning
