UNB Makerspace

Have an idea or design you want to bring to life? UNB's Makerspace is open to students, faculty and staff. Welcome to your resource for innovation, design and collaboration.

What is a Makerspace?

A Makerspace is a workshop and design studio all together in the same spot. It provides an inclusive and supportive space for Makers to share ideas and techniques and to create prototypes or projects. Our Makerspace has high quality 3D printers, a laser cutter and a huge selection of electronic devices, parts and tools. 

Who can use the Makerspace?

The Makerspace is open to all students, faculty and staff — regardless of faculty or department. Thanks to the support of the Engineering Endowment Fund and UNB Student Union we can provide free access and materials to all undergraduate students! 

Nervous about testing out the space? Don't worry! There are friendly student facilitators on hand to help you learn the equipment and bring your idea to life.
