Makerspace

Providing hands on access to technologies for DIY making and collaboration

Who can access the Makerspace?

Only currently affiliated students, faculty and staff of the University of Calgary may gain access to the Makerspace. Anyone may visit the Makerspace during our open hours to see example projects and learn more about our equipment and services. If you are interested in holding a special event in the Makerspace that involves non-University members, please contact us.

Orientation

This orientation is required for anyone wanting to access the Makerspace. It will provide a general introduction to the space, and an introduction to potential hazards and safe use of the space.

After this orientation, attendees will be given UNICARD access to use the Makerspace during open hours. Card access processing may take up to a week; in the meantime, staff will mediate access.
