Labs and Studios

More Info

Explore CETA's labs virtually through our photo galleries!

Access our campus maps here to help you find these spaces and others.

With dedicated spaces in the Hursey Center, United Technologies Hall, Harry Jack Gray Center, and Dana Hall, there is a place for you to bring your imagination to life!

The average class in CETA is 24 students, though many classes run with far fewer students. Those classes are held in these classrooms, labs and studios equipped with digital and overhead projectors, television equipment regularly maintained by Media Technology Services, as well as computers. We also regularly update our teaching labs and studios so you can learn on the latest technology with new software and equipment supported by an in-house staff of computer and technology specialists. In addition, through CETA's Open Lab Program, you have the ability to use the labs and studios outside of regularly scheduled hours, and even work as lab and studio monitors in the program.

Discover Our Makerspace

Students working in makerspace

University of Hartford's Makerspace, given by Paul ’76 and Sharon Oliva, is equipped with power- and hand- tools, 3D printers, scanners, CNC (computer numeric control) machines, and lockers for CETA students to create, design, and store their prototypes. Bring a 2D image to life on one of our 23 3D printers in our newly added dedicated space within the Makerspace. Take projects apart and put them back together in our second machine shop on campus, given by Bauer, Inc., and the Auletta Family, located within the updated Makerspace. The open floor plan with power from the ceiling (literally!) allows students to collaborate better than ever before!

Visit the Makerspace on the second level of the Hursey Center in Room 216!
