Smart Space Kota Kinabalu Level 9 (UPDATED: 2018-08-28)
Welcome! If this is your first time visiting the “Space” as our Guest...
As our Guest, you have the same “right-to-use” as any Member of the Space. You can become a Member by (a) frequenting the Space; (b) being a legal resident of Sabah; and (c) joining our chat groups or mailing lists. We will not divulge any personal information without prior approval, unless required by law. You are free to use our facilities within the bounds of reasonable usage and Malaysian Law. A Member with keys to the Space is known as a Keyed Member, and should notify other Members and Guests of these rules.

- Be considerate with anything odorous or strong-smelling that you might bring in.
- Minors must be within immediate reach of a Parent/Legal Guardian at all times.
- Water and snacks may be available for on-site consumption and not to be taken home.
- Finish your drinks, and empty your cup/container in a sink before disposal/leaving
- Research risks and take all necessary precautions before committing potentially damaging and non-reversible activities (e.g. drilling, melting, painting, cutting, etc)
