Tech Accelerator Space
Engineering and life science lab and office space is available for research units and businesses.
First Floor (Engineering)
The first floor of UND Tech Accelerator building is primarily designed for engineering. There are four engineering spaces, four office spaces, and a vivarium.
Although the first floor laboratory spaces were initially designed for engineers in mind, several of these areas could be easier converted to function in other capacities.

- Four BioSafety Level-2 (BSL-2) spaces
- A BioSafety Level-3 (BSL-3) space

- Three office suites
The ABSL3 contains 3 suites (between 208 and 320 ft2) that can accommodate up to three individual projects and an ABSL3-E suite (597 ft2, in 2 rooms) that can accommodate one project related to virology, microbiology and molecular biology small animal research or other projects that require BSL3 or BSL3-E bio-containment. Each bio-containment area has a pass-through autoclave, air interlocks, class II biological safety cabinets and the ABSL3-E suite has a shower and changing room facilities. In addition, BSL2 spaces within the Tech Accelerator facility and vivarium facilities for quarantine of small animals are also available.
