Center Tours

Rodgers Library is partnering with several centers across campus to hold tours of the research facilities. Touring these centers is an opportunity for students to explore the UA facilities and also to connect with the faculty and staff that operate these centers.  Starting this week, we will tour the Cube, the MINT center and the Center Analytical Facility.

The Cube at the University of Alabama is an active space where students learn, share, think and create by designing, devising and constructing. The Cube is located in Hardaway Hall and currently includes the 3D prototyping Lab, Electronics Prototyping Lab, UA Makerspace, ideaLAB and Apps Lab. We will tour the Cube at the following days.
