The Incubator Lab
The Incubator Lab is an interdisciplinary event and meeting space for the collaboration and generation of ideas and projects. To facilitate brainstorming, writeable walls surround the space, and tables and chairs can be arranged in different positions. The room features up-to-date technology. Reservations can be made for single-day or multi-day use, and for this reason, reoccurring events such as classes or department meetings cannot be scheduled in the Incubator Lab.
The Global Seminar Room
The Global Seminar room allows users to connect with others via video conferencing software with a hardwired connection for less delay, whether meeting with someone across Fort Worth or across the globe. The tiered arrangement seats up to 30 people, which allows every person to have a desk and a good view of one of the two front displays. Reservations can be made for single-day or multi-day use, and for this reason, reoccurring events such as classes or department meetings cannot be scheduled in the Global Seminar room.
The Atrium of Rees-Jones Hall
The Atrium of Rees-Jones Hall can be reserved for events ranging from an informal gathering between proceedings in other reserved rooms to a formal dinner seating up to 80 people. Food and drink are allowed in the Atrium; however, it is recommended that the location for food and drink arrangement be discussed with the confirmation of the reservation to ensure it does not interfere with academic activities or other reservations.
