The Knowledge Lab is a rapid prototyping space where the Purdue community can use a variety of materials, equipment, and software to experiment with the exploration and presentation of their ideas. Celebrating the Boilermaker spirit of imagination and innovation, the space offers low-stakes resources such as sewing machines, Riso printer, a podcast booth, heat press, yarns, cardboard, fabrics, and more. It serves as a first stop in a pipeline of opportunities on campus to fully actualize an idea. Located in WALC 3007, drop-ins welcome, no appointment necessary. Check the schedule or follow their Instagram page to learn about upcoming workshops and events.
IT support along with wide-format printing assistance will be offered to Boilermakers at our HIKS and WALC Purdue IT Service Desks locations:
The wide format printers are geared for research presentation, blueprints and coursework, and are accessible during library hours, including evenings and weekends. Purdue IT staff at these locations are available to help users configure their files to print correctly.
Additional IT support is available on the first floor of the Humanities, Social Sciences and Education Library in Stewart Center.
The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) houses free writing resources and instructional material as well as on-campus consultations to assist students in their development as writers—regardless of their skill levels. In addition to their regular service hours in KRACH, they offer tutoring services in WALC 3049, Monday through Friday from 12:30 to 6:00 PM.
