Maker Hub

WELCOME TO THE MAKER HUB, a collaborative space for innovation and creativity where we provide access to tools, equipment, and resources that will help bring your ideas to life.

We are a diverse community of makers, inventors, designers, and entrepreneurs who are passionate about creating and building things. Our space is open to all students, faculty, and staff of the Georgetown community, and we offer a wide range of resources to help you develop your skills and explore your interests.

Whether you're an experienced maker or just starting out, the Maker Hub has something for you. We offer access to a range of tools and equipment, including 3D printers, laser cutters, woodworking tools, electronics equipment, and more. Our team of student volunteers are available to provide training and guidance, and we offer workshops throughout the year on a variety of topics.

At the Maker Hub, we believe that creativity and innovation are critical for solving the world's most pressing challenges. That's why we're committed to providing a collaborative space where people from all backgrounds can come together to share ideas and work on projects. Whether you're interested in developing a new product, pursuing a research project, or simply exploring your creative side, the Maker Hub is the perfect place to get started.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the resources and opportunities available to you on Lau 1. We're excited to welcome you to our community of makers and innovators, and we look forward to seeing the amazing things you create!

Our Space

The Maker Hub is located on the 1st floor of Lauinger Library. The space is small, only about 1,500 ft2, but we boast an impressive array of technologies and equipment. The Maker Hub also strives to provide consumable materials for visitors to use. However our material supply is always in flux, and we are only able to supply some materials through generous donations from students, faculty, staff, and affiliated personnel.
