Maker Hub


The Maker Hub promotes innovation and hands-on learning through workshops, curricular engagement, and one-on-one project mentorship. Most of our tools are free to use, and our community of staff and volunteers are available during open hours to teach you how to use the equipment and turn your ideas into reality. We support Georgetown researchers, makers, entrepreneurs, and artists by providing specialized equipment and encouraging a collaborative environment in which we support and learn from each other.

Drop in to see what we have to offer. It's your Maker Hub!

Whether you find us through a class, join us for a specialty workshop, or just stop by during open hours, there are plenty of ways to get involved in the Maker Hub! The vast majority of our materials and machines are entirely free to use for both academic as well as personal projects.

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.
