The only limit is your creativity!

Welcome to the MakerSpace!

 

The MakerSpace is available to UNCSA students, faculty and staff, as the whole community of UNCSA, to access tools, learn new skills, and create things both for academic and personal purposes. Perishable materials strictly provide to students' non profit project only. Production and class projects take priority. Any reservation will take priority over walk-in, walk-in will be at first come first basis. As MakerSpace is an all student run creative lab, our facilitators have required class assignment to go, please be courtesy of our opening time and plan your project ahead of time.
