Makerspaces are creative areas where people can utilize a plethora of tools and knowledge to design and build whatever they want.
UNC’s makerspaces are incredible resources that are underutilized by the campus community.
Unbeknownst to many students, UNC is home to four makerspaces spread throughout campus, located at Hanes Art Center, Murray Hall, Venable Hall and Carmichael Hall.
Unlike standard wood or metalworking shops, UNC’s makerspaces additionally feature a variety of technology from 3D printers to T-shirt presses.
The makerspaces afford everyone an opportunity to build a tangible object. Whether you are an artist, entrepreneur or someone who cannot even put together an IKEA set, the makerspaces can help anyone construct their ideas.
