There is also large screens on the back wall and fancy looking chairs and couches. This lab belongs to Miu Iruma.
During the first half of Chapter 1, the lab is locked as Monokuma is still preparing it. Later in the chapter, Miu spends most of her time inside, working on the cameras that Kaede and Shuichi asked her to make.

Kirumi Tojo's Lab[]

Research Center Kirumi Tojo
The Ultimate Maid Lab (超高校級のメイドの研究教室) was first found in Chapter 2, after the passageway in the second floor is opened up. It is decorated in a Victorian style, which was the time when owning a maid was considered to show royalty, as said by the lab's owner, Kirumi Tojo.

Gonta Gokuhara's Lab[]

Research Center Gonta Gokuhara
The Ultimate Entomologist Lab (超高校級の昆虫博士の研究教室) is found during Chapter 2, after a hallway in the second floor is opened up. The door to the lab is decorated with a butterfly. The room itself is full of greenery and has its walls lined with small terrariums for insects. This lab belongs to Gonta Gokuhara.
In order to host a "viewing party" for everyone's motive videos, Kokichi makes Gonta kidnap everyone and bring them to his Research Lab. Shuichi was kidnapped while he was talking to Ryoma. Ryoma apologizes to Shuichi before running away, while Gonta manages to knock Shuichi into unconsciousness. He later finds himself stuck in the lab with Kokichi sitting on top of him. Along with him, Gonta managed to kidnap K1-B0, Korekiyo, Tenko and Tsumugi, giving them all alibis during the middle part of the second class trial.

Research Center Ryoma Hoshi
The Ultimate Tennis Pro Lab (超高校級のテニス選手の研究教室) was first found in Chapter 2, after the passageway in the second floor is opened up. It is located on the third floor of the academy. The room itself has a tennis field and a backroom, containing showers. The room also contains handcuffs in the shower room, symbolising the owner, Ryoma's, past as a prisoner. The room has a window that overlooks the pool and is parallel to the back of the gym.
During the second chapter, this lab is where the murder of the Ryoma himself takes place. Kirumi Tojo shows her motive to Ryoma, asking for help. Ryoma, after telling her that her life means a lot more than his, looks away from her, giving her a chance to strike him in the head, knocking him out. She then handcuffs him using the handcuffs found in the lab and uses the sinks in the shower room in the back of the lab to drown him, killing him. As the lab and gym are parallel to each other, Kirumi uses the window to make a make-shift way to the gym without breaking the schools rules and dumps his body in the piranha tank.

Maki Harukawa's Lab[]

Research Center Maki Harukawa
The Ultimate Assassin Lab (超高校級の暗殺者の研究教室), initially thought to be the Ultimate Child Caregiver Lab, is first found in Chapter 2, but the owner, Maki, refuses to let anyone in until the beginning of Chapter 3. It is located on the third floor of the academy. The door is decorated in red. During Chapter 2, Maki barricades herself inside and refuses to let anyone in, in order to keep her true talent a secret. This leads to her not having an alibi during the Class Trial. After the class trial in Chapter 2, Maki's secret is revealed to everyone after Kokichi tells everyone about it, despite Maki's attempt to stop him.

His lab is large and red, roses decorating the span of the floor, with a large round table in the middle, several unconventional chairs surrounding it which resembles a Class Trials room, possibly referencing the fact he already was a participant in one killing game.
