Access & Hours

Hours: Monday - Friday, 10 am - 5:00 pm and Special extended hours during the academic year (See calendar below or add it to your calendar here)

The Stephenson Foundation Bioengineering Laboratory (225 Skirkanich) is open for general use during regular lab hours (M-F 10 am - 5 pm) and extended hours, unless specified in the lab calendar.

We are the only Bio-MakerSpace at Penn and in the Philadelphia area, and we are open to all PennCard holders. Access to the lab assumes acceptance of all lab policies and safety rules.

During class hours which coincide with the regular lab hours, classes have first priority, but students can use any open bay or the projects room, unless the class information on the calendar specifies that the lab is closed. However, during class hours, please keep voices down. The lab is NOT available outside of the regular hours, except for extended hours, scheduled classes, and events.

The Laboratory is closed during all University observed holidays.

Class and event schedules as well as lab closing information can be found in the calendar below.
