Operational since 2019, the Cryogenic Underground TEst (CUTE) facility is located 2 km underground in the SNOLAB laboratory near Sudbury Ontario, Canada. Although designed with the focus of performance testing cryogenic (~ 10 mK) detectors for the Super Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (SuperCDMS), CUTE also makes available a well shielded and vibrationally isolated underground platform for other cryogenic detectors or projects which may benefit from such a low background underground facility. The main features and performance of the CUTE facility will be discussed, as well as some examples of devices and detectors which have been or are planned to be tested at CUTE.
