The RLab is a 16,500 square feet of co-working labs, classrooms, and studios in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, on the third floor of Building 22, in New York. RLab is the nation’s first city-funded center for research, entrepreneurship, and education in virtual and augmented-reality, spatial computing, and other emerging media technologies.

NYCEDC and the Mayor's Office of NYC Media and Entertainment selected NYU Tandon School of Engineering as the administering institution and a consortium of participating universities, including Columbia University, CUNY, and The New School to manage and operate the space, along with a workforce development center at CUNY Lehman College in the Bronx. The new multi-university center is critical to the City’s plans to establish New York City as the next global leader in VR/AR and related technologies and will create hundreds of new jobs in the field.
