Can anyone share guidance they provide for installation and use of a 3-D printer?

Recommendations range from "use in a well-ventilated area" to housing in a HEPA-filtered encasement.

I don't have information on the size of the unit. It will be in a university art department so I assume fairly heavy use and varied feedstock.
