If you want help installing Linux or just want to eat and hang out, come to installfest! The LUG Lounge, at Boelter Hall 2763, is a meeting/study/hangout place for the group and facilitates a lot its activities. Feel free to stop by and meet other Linux users (as well as people in ACM and UPE)!

There is a makerspace on the floor below us, where you can go and 3D print things (as well as lasercut them).

There is also a trash heap outside the first floor (next to the Engineering IV building), where you can sometimes find old monitors/computers and old networking equipment.
