Yes! The Virtual Reality Studio is located in the Taylor Family Digital Library, room 340 E.
The room contains a high-performance PC and a variety of VR hardware. The equipment is designed to be used at “room scale”, allowing the user to navigate naturally and use handheld controllers to manipulate objects, communicate, and experience immersive audio-visual environments.
The technology at the Taylor Family Digital Library allows users to work with already-existing VR apps, or to program their own applications using open source tools to enhance research and teaching.
Virtual Reality technology can be used by faculty, staff and graduate students. Undergraduate students can access the VR Tools for VR research or development through a faculty advisor.
Book the Virtual Reality Studio through the online booking module.
