Extended Reality Learning & Research Lab

MEF Extended Reality Learning & Research Lab aims to provide deeper and more engaging learning while increasing the power of research. The lab offers the opportunity to discover what virtual reality technology has to offer and experience the "metaverse". Our laboratory is open to both instructors who want to integrate the technology into their teaching and research and students.

The Lab is equipped with Oculus Quest 2 headsets. Users can access the Oculus Quest app store. You can find the educational apps available in our Lab’s library at the end of this page. If users want to use the Steam store, the appropriate computer connection cables are available for use at the Lab. However, to use the headsets via Steam, users have to bring their own high-performing computers.

Please email us at for reservations or your questions.
