XR Sandbox

Get a Room Set Up

The Hubs Team will gladly assist you in exploring Hubs. You can request one of three types of spaces: 

1. Access to one of the already built spaces to host XR events. 
2. A personal room/space from a template of spaces. This can be a general classroom, outdoor area, or lounge.
3. A newly built space that is not a part of the current library. 

Please note that any personalization will require extra time for the Hubs Team. Depending on the request, the team may reach out to create a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) detailing expectations of the project. In general, the Hubs Team will create a space for your needs and set you up with login credentials and access. You may request a more in depth tutorial on managing and navigated Hubs. 

Begin by submitting a request form and a member of the Team will reach out to set up a meeting!
