The University of Newcastle has created a new space to give makers, designers, programmers and scientists the opportunity to collaborate on projects and design, problem-solve and share ideas.

Located in the Architecture precinct in room BSC124, this hands-on learning environment is open to any UON student who wants to work on innovative ideas. The space features:

  • Powered work spaces
  • 3D printers
  • Tools
  • Lockable storage - lock away a project that you need to come back to!

Makerspace Student Group

If you'd like to connect with some like-minded students you can also join the Makerspace student group. Initially set up by electrical engineering students in 2012, they are keen to collaborate with students in other areas of study to brainstorm on new projects.

Although you don't need to be a member of the group to use the space, you are welcome to join and enjoy social events and activites hosted by the club.
