There will be access to other rooms and work spaces. Access to any other floors not being used for the jam during this time is strictly off limits.

DePaul Students, there is limited equipment and it is first come first serve

Saturday, Feb. 1st

8AM - CDM building opens, teams will have all day to work on their games. 

This year we will have the building reserved for one night, so we can have teams stay overnight in the CDM Building for Saturday only. Once the building closes at 6pm, no one is allowed entry nor reentry back into the building. If you wish to leave the building at any time, you can do so (but please let your team and the site organizers know before hand!)

Hang out with us all night, or get home to get some sleep and come back when the building opens on Sunday at 12pm . Coordinate with your teams beforehand on what time you'll all meet again on Sunday.
