The Commons' Makerspace

Fall 2023 Makerspace Workshops

Our Fall workshop schedule is coming soon!





 A Makerspace is a place where people can gather to create, invent, tinker, and explore a variety of tools and materials. It gives students the resources to conceive an idea and bring it into the physical world. 

Our Makerspace is located on the main floor of the QEII Library, around the corner from the Jumping Bean cafe. 

We offer workshops and drop-in access for 3D printing, CNC milling, vinyl cutting, sewing, electronics, and more! Contact us for more information.


Policy for the use of Makerspace Equipment

While the makerspace encourages students to use the space both for academic use and for personal creative projects, we do have some limits on what we can allow in our space. A request will be denied if the resultant product is:

  • prohibited by law;
  • unsafe, harmful, dangerous or considered by Makerspace staff to pose an immediate threat to the well-being of others;
  • considered by Makerspace staff to be obscene or otherwise inappropriate for the academic environment;
  • in violation of another’s intellectual property rights. For example, the printers will not be used to reproduce material that is subject to copyright, patent or trademark protection;
  • weapons;
  • parts intended for reselling.
