Physics Machine Shops

The Department has taken the following proactive steps in the Physics Machine Shop  to promote social distancing and protect the health of all members of our physics community:

  • The Student Shop will be closed until April 30 or until the time that students may return to in-person academic activities.   

  • The Professional Machine Shop will continue to provide service to the campus utilizing telephone/email/teleconferencing communication.  In-person access to the professional shop and staff will be restricted.

  • Jobs for the professional shop will be accepted by email or phone, and drawings and model files will be accepted by email or hard copy left in a new drop-off area outside the main shop entrance. 

  • Instructions for communicating with the professional shop are HERE and are posted at the shop entrance
