Library MakerSpace

Welcome to the Library MakerSpace!

We're a safe space on campus, providing our University community with a place to escape the rigours of study and explore, design, experience and build through self-creative and self-directed learning. Technologies on offer include 3D printing and scanning, photography and media equipment, virtual reality (VR) tech, sewing equipment and art and crafting supplies.

Our MakerSpaces are staffed by our MakerSpace Coordinator, along with Student Peer Support Assistants (SPSAs), who are there to guide you.
