UTSC Library Makerspace

 

Welcome to the UTSC Library Makerspace!

Created for students, faculty, and staff in the UTSC community, this dedicated space in the library is an environment that encourages its users to be innovative, explore new concepts, execute great ideas, and most importantly - have fun doing it!

The Makerspace has been developed to provide bookable access to a collaborative space, equipped with modern technology such as 3D printers, iMac computers, specialty software, and more. It has been designed to help turn creative ideas into realities by making the resources to do so available and accessible. All who use the space are encouraged to experiment and discover, tinker with technologies, work together on projects, and bring multiple perspectives and skill sets together.
