Laboratory Access Application

Laboratory Access Application

Engineering Student

Apply through this portal for laboratory access. The application process consists of five steps.

1) Check that your professor or supervisor has filed a project safety assessment request that lists you as one of the persons working on this project.

2) View the safety presentations and videos specified below.

3) Fill out the Laboratory Access Request Form and upload it in this application, but only if a lab key or access code is needed. Students in an Undergraduate Class Laboratory do not need any lab key or access code, hence they do not need to submit the form.

4) Fill out and submit the application provided below.

5)  Complete any required laboratory safety training as directed.

Best wishes!


Please, fill out and submit the following application to request laboratory access
Your full name (required)
Your e-mail (required)
Your WSU ID # (required)
Your Phone # (required)
Your year in college
Your WSU major
If your major is Mechanical Engineering, have you passed ME 311?
Name of your project supervisor
Class(es) related to this project, if any (e.g. ME 416)

Please, select the kind of laboratory access being requested

Note that "Undergraduate Class Laboratory Access" signifies access during regularly scheduled class laboratory time when the class instructor is present. If lab access is needed outside of regularly scheduled class time, please select "Undergraduate Laboratory Access for Class or Other Project Completion".

Next, upload your laboratory access request form signed by your professor or supervisor. Please, do not sign the form yourself at this time; you will do so at the time lab keys and/or codes would be issued to you. This form is only required if lab keys and/or access codes are needed. Students in an Undergraduate Class Laboratory do not need any lab key or access code, hence they do not need to submit the laboratory access form.

Please, note the following stipulations.

  • All information required in this form should be submitted to foster swift processing
  • Students should heed their professors' / supervisors' laboratory access recommendations
  • Students should adhere to all safety policies
  • For all cases where keys and/or access codes are needed, students will participate in a lab safety training session. Please indicate below the days and times of availability for this session
