The Innovation Garage is a new kind of space in Auraria Library designed to enable you to take your work to the next level. Situated at the 10th St entrance to the Library, the Innovation Garage’s flexible layout, abundant natural light, and ample collaborative tools provide a physical and mental space to enable you to bring a fresh perspective to any project or meeting.

Reserving the Space

The Innovation Garage can be reserved by Auraria Campus faculty, staff, or recognized student organizations for:

  • Events
  • Group / Club Meetings
  • Workshops
  • Brainstorming Sessions
  • Hackathons
  • Departmental functions
  • Art Displays

Capacity: 30 people

Fees: Auraria Library does not charge a fee for the use of the Innovation Garage, but you are responsible for cleaning the tables, sweeping the floors, and putting your trash and recyclables in the appropriate receptacles. Failure to clean up after your reservation will block you from future use of the Innovation Garage.
