Students making felt succulents in the Keller Center Makerspace

The Keller Center Makerspace provides free access to a variety of maker equipment, enabling users to explore the process of making, entrepreneurial ideas, innovative thinking, creative design, and turning ideas into reality. We host programs in and out of the classroom, along with an active calendar of making activities, talks, and events.

We are located on the second floor of the H-Wing of the Engineering Quadrangle (sometimes referred to on campus maps as Von Neumann Hall) in room H219.

Hours of operation

The Makerspace will be closed during Summer 2024 for remodeling and installation of new equipment. Be notified when the Makerspace reopens.
