Frequently Asked Questions


Does My Organization Have to Apply to Be an Associate Member?
Yes. You may apply to join our community here.  Once your application is approved, you’ll be invited to attend an orientation session to activate your membership. Each pass-holder will also be invited to orientation. 


Can Each Pass-holder Use the Labs/Shop? 
Only members who have completed safety training are allowed in the Shop, where the labs and equipment are.  Shop Safety Training occurs weekly, so members have opportunities to gain Shop access on an ongoing basis. Training is generally 30 minutes to 1 hour, and covers lab safety and how to use specific equipment.

Can I Have Visitors? 
Yes, you are welcome to have visitors in our co-working space. Members also have access to book conference rooms to conduct meetings with members and non-members, alike. The Shop is the only space in mHUB off-limits to visitors. 

Are Materials Included? 
Materials aren't included in membership, but we do have a convenient on-site materials store where members can purchase them. Our Shop staff can also guide members on the most cost-effective sources for any unique materials not on-site.
