Diving further and further into debt because your grad school stipend can only cover rent OR food? Lower your expenses by secretly shacking up in your empty lab!
Apart from the cost savings, living in the lab also has a bunch of other benefits, like:
Cool new amenities
Does your apartment have an ice maker? Or an oven that can go up to 1200 degrees? Didn’t think so! Plus there’s still sinks that reek of bleach and bacteria to remind you of home.
Amenities that are better than the ones in your apartment
Who needs a bed when you have a clean microwave, cluttered shelves full of books you’ll never read, and super strong alcohol!
All the yeast you could ever want
Worried you’ll miss out on the sourdough baking craze without your home kitchen? Worry no more! Stores may be out of yeast but there’s plenty in the lab, and just think how great the warm room will be for proofing dough!
Instead of having noisy roommates who leave their dishes in the sink, welcome to life with roommates who barely make a peep!
Fruit fly cheerleaders
These lil guys basically CHEER whenever you eat fruit, and without rent you can probably afford a few berries for once!
More time for experiments
While everyone else has to put their lab research on hold, you get to go wild on all the instruments that usually have a months-long waiting list!
