Marston Makerspace

Marston Makerspace provides shared equipment and workspace for creative projects and collaboration. We are located in the basement of Marston Science Library, just across from the elevators.

Marston Makerspace is open to everyone. Access is not restricted based on major, departmental affiliation, lab enrollment, completion of training modules, etc. We welcome both academic and hobby projects. The space is staffed and supervised during Open Lab; no booking or appointment necessary — just walk in and get started!

We charge for only two things: 3D printing (at the rate of $0.15 per gram of filament) and button supplies.

Everything else is free for reasonable personal use while working in Makerspace! There is no fee to use our sewing machines, soldering stations, glue guns, cutting machines, heat presses, hand tools, etc. Click here for a more comprehensive list of what we offer.

Materials are limited, and if you need something specific for your project (like three yards of dinosaur flannel to sew pajama pants, glitter heat transfer vinyl in a certain shade of blue, or a specific replacement capacitor), you must provide it.

Please note that our equipment and tools are for in-Makerspace use only. They’re not available for checkout and cannot leave the room. If you’re interested in take-home items, please peruse Marston’s Tool and Technology Lending collection.

We love to host orgs and groups in the Makerspace, but please coordinate with us before arranging a club gathering. We have limited space and prefer to schedule special events outside of Open Lab hours.

Marston Makerspace does not offer any classes or workshops at this time. We’ll do our best to provide personalized assistance with your project on a walk-in basis during Open Lab.

See you soon!
