Where to Find Us

The MakerSpace is located on the ground floor of the Library is open during Library opening hours. You will need your university ID card to enter the library gates. Then turn right, and you will see the MakerSpace ahead on your right.

What We Do

The MakerSpace is a space where students can be creative, collaborate, share, develop ideas, innovate, and generally just ‘make stuff’. The space is available for staff and students to use at any time while the library is open. You can book a PC, Mac, laser cutter, vinyl cutter, or 3D printer in advance or just drop in!
