Hours/Access/Contact Us

Makerspace hours:

Monday through Thursday 9am-8pm

Friday 9am-5pm

Open machine shop hours:

Monday-Thursday 2pm-8pm 

Machining ends 20 minutes prior to closing in order to give YOU time to clean your work area. 


To access the design space with hand tools you will need to review the Makerspace rules and sign a training form the first time you come.

To access the machine shop there are two routes. The first is to bring in your project between 6-8 pm on Monday-Thursday and receive supervised instruction. The second is for those who have already taken TECH 1600, ME 1140, ME 2030, or have taken a comparable course or have comparable experience. Those students can come to the Makerspace on Wednesdays at 5 pm and receive a safety refresher and sign the training forms, and they will then have access to the open-use hours.
