User Information

UMass Lowell extends use of our scientific resources to academic, government and commercial researchers using two programs: our Core Research Facilities program and our Campus Resources program.  Our searchable custom made database catalogues resources available within these two programs.

Core Research Facilities

Our Core Research Facilities are managed by professional staff and may be scheduled using our on-line system. Using our CRF system is simple. We have a standardized Core Research Facilities Agreement which is automatically renewable up to five years. The terms and conditions are non-negotiable providing rapid execution which can make you a CRF user in less than a day! Once the CRF Agreement is executed, users are able to reserve instrument use, training and services across all UMass Lowell Core Research Facilities. Please select the appropriate user link for detailed information and instructions:

Campus Resources

Many faculty and center laboratories are available to internal and external researchers by using a purchase order or research services agreement through our Office of Research Administration.  Contact information is listed under instrument or service within our searchable CRISP™ database.   Please contact Susan Puryear, Director, Office of Research Administration (ORA) regarding contractual arrangements at or 978-934-4170.
