In order to prepare for the construction of the future campus the Backlot event and making facilities will be mostly moving inside. The Backlot will be open on weekdays during daylight hours and will primarily function as a social space for meal breaks, casual meetings, studying, and light recreation.

Fabrication equipment currently housed and supported on the Backlot will be available for student project use in the San Francisco Shops starting Fall 19.
