The Creative Studio has virtual reality (VR) headsets for check-out. Oculus can be reserved for 5 days at a time and can be renewed on the last day if no one else has reserved it in advance. Patrons are required to set-up and use their own Oculus accounts. We recommend users new to VR begin with the Oculus Go.

Available Equipment:

  • Oculus Go (2x)
  • Oculus Quest (1x)
  • Oculus Rift + Touch (1x)

Class Instruction

Faculty members who are interested in integrating a digital aspect into their classes or assignments should consult with Vanessa Rodriguez, Creative Studio manager. We may be available to give project specific instruction to small groups of students, help you come up with ideas for creating a reasonable digital media project, or purchase virtual reality experiences that students can use in the studio.
