Maker Studio

What is the Maker Studio?

The Maker Studio is a creative space for students, faculty and community users to experiment with new technologies and tools to tackle projects and explore ideas and concepts in a hands-on way. Users from the MRU community can design objects and creations for their research, coursework, or personal projects.

Drop in times for the Maker Studio are Monday to Friday 10 am to 2 pm.

The Maker Studio is bookable for some classwork, workshops and research purposes.

We look forward to having the larger Maker Studio (EL1245) completed by January 2018.
