Laboratory, Office & Storage Fees

Laboratories

Laboratories may be rented on a yearly or daily basis. Laboratories may be shared at half the full rate. Exclusive use means that the space is not shared. Lab space not described as ‘exclusive’ is shared space. Scientists renting for the year do not pay storage charges for items stored in their personal lab space. However, if staff deals with items at RMBL (e.g., moving them out), scientists will be charged $50/hour for dealing with personal or research items.

The below rates are current for 2024.
