Virtual reality—VR—is an astounding new form of media that holds incredible promise in fields across the educational spectrum. In order to take advantage of what VR has to offer, it's crucial students, faculty and instructors have the opportunity to experience VR for themselves.

The university's virtual reality lab located on the lower level of Waldo Library is a collaborative effort between the University Libraries and the Office of Information Technology. The VR Lab helps faculty learn about, explore and integrate virtual reality content into their classes and research. In addition, the Lab provides students with the chance to experience both entertainment and educational VR content. Visit the VR Lab website for additional information and lab location and hours.

Our faculty have already began to implement virtual reality into the classroom. Check out projects from our students and faculty at VR Projects.

Consultation and assistance with VR-related projects is available by contacting Kevin Abbott in the Office of Information Technology.
