How to Adjust Your Oculus Headset

  1. Loosen the straps on the sides and top of the headset.
  2. Start by slipping the back strap around the back of your head and then sliding the front down over your eyes.
  3. Hold the front of the headset with one hand and adjust the side straps until the front fits snug against your face.
  4. Adjust the top strap so it's snug against the top of your head. Tighten it until you feel the weight more on the top and back of your head and less on your face.
  5. Find the small slider on the bottom right of the front of headset. Using your thumb, press in and slide it left or right until the screen looks as crisp and clear as possible.
  6. Move the earpieces so they rest comfortably on your ears.

Oculus Rift Controllers

How to Grip Your Oculus Controllers

  1. Familiarize yourself with your two (2) Oculus Rift controllers, including: the front and side triggers, joystick, Oculus menu button and other buttons.
  2. The right-handed controller has the joystick located on the right side while the left-handed controller has the joystick located on the left side. They are NOT interchangeable.
  3. Fasten the wrist straps around each wrist and tighten to a secure, but comfortable level.
  4. Slide your right hand through the plastic hoop of the right-handed controller as if you were giving someone a handshake.
  5. Grasp the controller so that your pointer finger rests on the forward trigger, your middle finger rests on the side trigger, and your thumb can comfortably reach all the buttons on the face of the controller. 
  6. Repeat with the left-handed controller.

Safety

  • Each console is equipped with a lockable storage locker for the safety of your belongings.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and stay within the boundary grid during use as this is a shared space.
  • It’s important to give yourself a 10 to 15 minute break every 30 minutes (even if you don’t think you need it).
  • If you feel dizziness, nausea, eye strain, headache, or other adverse sensations, stop and remove the helmet, and sit down if appropriate.
  • Consult your doctor before using the VR equipment if you have a pre-existing medical condition (e.g. heart ailment, anxiety disorders, or PTSD).
