Become a User

Open to Everyone

Anyone in the world can come use the cleanrooms and labs. Whether you already belong to the GT community or are a non-GT affiliated user, there are only a few simple steps to join.

Pay as You Go

Our rates are designed to provide the most flexibility for our users. You only pay when you use our facilities and equipment. So if you use our labs one month, but not the next, you will only be charged for the month that you had activity. Sign-up below to become a user. There is no obligation and you will not be charged until you actually begin using our equipment or cleanrooms.

External Users

If you have no affiliation with Georgia Tech, you are an external user. This includes non-GT academic institutions, government labs, and industry users. If you are from an academic institution or government institution, you pay the same rates as Georgia Tech users.

To join our community, please fill out this form and fax it to 404-385-408, with attention to Traci Walden-Monroe. Once we have received and processed this form, you will receive further instructions from our staff.
