Drop-in Hours

The DREAM Lab offers walk-in hours throughout the academic year for UCSB affiliates to access the lab space. You may use our high-powered workstations and on-site restricted resources. Get help accessing our data collections. Or ask-us-anything about data and analysis software.

As a general rule, we are open noon to 8, Sunday through Thursday, and noon to 5, Friday and Saturday. For details and exceptions, see the Library hours
