Community Guidelines


M06 is a creative workspace and learning environment open to the GW community. We operate on a modest budget and with a small staff so it's essential that everyone in the space does their part to keep it functioning, which means respecting the space, the resources, and the people in it.

It is crucial that M06 remain SAFE for everyone. Safety also means feeling safe. We are fortunate to come from a diversity of backgrounds and experience. We value all forms of education, exposure, and curiosity. We believe M06 can model the community we want GW to be. We can practice living these values at M06 by taking accountability for the space and the ways that our actions impact one another here. 


We require that you utilize equipment properly – do not use equipment you have not been trained on, and refrain from disturbing work areas (supplies or tools) of others. Always ask if you don’t know and let M06 staff know if something seems off.


Circularity is one of our values. We ask that use resources efficientlyand reuse whenever possible. Have a look through our supplies and scrap receptaclesbefore using/buying new material. We have scrap receptacles for textiles and wood and bins with various electronic parts and hardware. Circular design is a thing – think from the start about designing for recycling and for minimizing impact on the environment.  Don't know where to start?  Ask us!


We ask that you thoroughly clean up behind yourself and leave all spaces better than you found them. Return tools and materials to their homes, sweep tabletops and the floor, and wipe down white boards. Claim a bin and some space on the Student Project Shelves for your stuff.  EAT IN THE KITCHEN AREA ONLY and DO YOUR DISHES.



Anything compostable goes in the freezer. Non-compostable, non-recyclable waste goes in the small kitchen trash bin.
