Welcome to the Makerspace!

**Alert: The Makerspace open hours have been suspended until further notice.  Please note that the space is available by appointment only to support critical research efforts. If you need access, please contact Eric Grimm directly to schedule an appointment.**

The University of Dayton Makerspace lab is dedicated to teaching all aspects of product development. Our lab is accessible and free of charge to University of Dayton students, faculty and staff. We are staffed with facilitators who are available to assist you with your entire project from initial design to final prototype.

We encourage you to create and explore by using a variety of fabrication techniques: wood, metal, electronics, welding, laser and 3D printing. Whether working on a school or personal project, we provide you with guidance, assistance, tools and equipment.


Safety is our number one priority. If you are unsure about using Makerspace equipment, we have the help for you! Before Makerspace access, we require that you take our 1 hour 30 minute training and orientation class that covers safety, rules and regulations. Training schedule can be found on either Bioraft or under the School of Engineering on our Makerspace Google calendar. Please stop by the Makerspace, KL 22, or call, x92505, with any questions.

The Makerspace is open to anyone with a University of Dayton ID. We hope to see you making soon!


To give students a safe place to come together, collaborate, design and create. We strive to provide a safe environment for hands-on learning and encourage everyone to learn as much as possible while they are here.
