Requesting Lab Space

A number of teaching lab spaces in Baker Lab are available for use by Cornell departments or affiliated groups. Approval for the use of teaching lab space is granted by the department safety committee.

The event coordinator for each group must first complete the Undergraduate Lab use Request survey.

Approval for use of teaching lab spaces is subject to the following conditions:

  • Timely submission of the request.
  • The requesting entity provides all information requested in the survey or by the safety committee.
  • Completion of required safety training.
  • The proposed use of the facilities would not disturb or otherwise interfere with other building activities.
  • The requesting entity agrees to follow all appropriate University policies as well as those specified by the Safety Committee review.
  • The requesting entity using the spaces will take proper care of the facilities and take full responsibility for any damages that may occur.


Any damage to the facility or laboratory equipment must be reported to the Laboratory Services Supervisor no later than the following business day.

The event coordinator is responsible for the repair and/or replacement cost associated with such damage.

Emergency Procedures

All fire and general safety procedures must be followed. If an emergency occurs, notify University response personnel by an appropriate means (fire pull box, emergency phone, etc.) and exit the building.

If, at any time during an event, the building fire alarm is activated, participants must cease all work and evacuate immediately following the Baker Lab Building Evacuation Plan.
