All efactory members will get an MSU access card. These cards are used to access your workspace, conference rooms, phone rooms, and the business suite. We will request your access card after your new member form is submitted.
Members will receive an email when their access card is ready for pick up. Cards can be picked up on the first floor of the Plaster Student Union in room 128. The office is open Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Photo IDs must be shown to pick up access cards.
Booking Conference Rooms
Members can book conference rooms through Teem – via web browser, app or iPad displays outside of the conference rooms. (Email us if you need to be added.) BKD and CoxHealth Innovation Rooms can be reserved through us. You don’t need to make a reservation for the phone rooms or the conference table in Coworking – they’re open if they aren’t occupied!
Our exterior doors are unlocked Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. except for MSU Holidays. Private office and dedicated desk coworking clients can access the building 24/7 via access cards.
Check In Kiosk
Please encourage your visitors to check in on the iPad outside the business suite. They will select your name (as their host) and you will receive an email/text/Slack message that they are here. Coming to the front and meeting your guest is much easier than them wandering the building looking for you!
Trash cans will be emptied daily by MSU custodial services. We have a broom, dustpan, and vacuum available for check out at the front desk. You are responsible for any other cleaning supplies.
If you need a clicker for a presentation, you can borrow one from the front desk.
We provide coffee (The Coffee Ethic!) free of charge for all members of the efactory. Coffee is located in airpots in The Perch.
Our efactory team does our best to keep the airpots full, but should you need coffee and there isn’t any out, you are more than welcome to make it. The coffee maker (and instructions) are in the kitchen inside the business suite. Please don’t make a full pot of coffee after 4:00 p.m. – it tends to end up just sitting overnight and being thrown out.
Conference Room Technology
Each conference room and phone room has a polycom/conference phone, TV, HDMI cable, and a whiteboard. Clients are expected to bring their own device to connect via the HDMI cable. If you need an HDMI adapter, clicker, or other presentation technology, please visit the front desk.
For polycom conference phones: Dial 9, 1 + phone number. User Guide
Emergency Response Plan
In case of emergency: Call 911 or 417-836-5509
The MSU Emergency Response Plan can be found here. Designated shelter areas are internal hallways, bathrooms, coworking and the GO CAPS/Accelerator space (Office 1025). For fire, exit building via north, east or west doors and proceed to lot 47 or 48, depending on exit.
There is a fax machine inside the business suite workroom. Dial 9 to get out. If you need to receive a fax, our number is 417-837-2614.
In addition to WiFi, each company is also provided VLAN ports in your office and you have a secure connection when plugged in.
There is a kitchen and self-service vending area in the atrium. Please help us keep this counter, sink, and microwave clean. Any items left at the end of the day will be thrown away.
There is a refrigerator in the business suite kitchen and another in Coworking. Please label any/all items you place in a refrigerator. Any unlabeled items are considered fair game for anyone to have!
All new employees will need to complete the New Member Form. After completing the form we’ll request their access card, provide access to Teem, Slack, etc.
Office supplies are your responsibility. The supplies in the workroom belong to efactory programs.
Private office clients and dedicated desk coworking members can get a parking pass after completing a Parking Form. Free guest parking is available in the front parking lot and along the street.
Note – If you have a parking pass and park in the front guest lot you will be ticketed.
Phones are provided in private offices. Phone numbers are printed on the handset. Submit a support ticket if you need additional phones. Phone lines cannot be transferred when you leave the facility. Avaya 9611G User Guide
