Metal Shop Hours of Operation
We follow the University of Tennessee’s holiday and administrative closing schedule and also close for semesters-end maintenance for two days leading up to “Study Day” before final exams starts. Due to the Kao ICS Consultants being off and limited staff is on hand, we will be open during spring, summer, fall and winter breaks but on a case-by-case basis. Please plan accordingly and come during times of full operation to get trained up before Study Day. Email us if you have any questions.
