VR with Oculus Go

What is the Oculus Go?

The Oculus Go is a virtual reality system. It is essentially a headset, or a pair of goggles, that allows you to view a virtual world through accompanying software. The Oculus Go does not require a desktop/monitor, making the Go a great portable option for VR.

How do I get one?

Teen Services has two Oculus Quest systems; they are available for request through the TSSR Request System.

How do I set it up?

Because the Oculus Go does not require any equipment other than the headset and the controller, there is no set up needed. As long as the Oculus Go is charged, it can be powered on and used immediately! If needed, additional support can be found here.

At a Glance

  • For one teen only at a time

Here are some additional considerations when using the Oculus Go:

  • Takes approximately 3 hours to completely charge from 0% to 100%
  • Lasts approximately 3 hours on a full charge
