The Maker Ninjas (student workers) and faculty members responsible for the operation of the MakerSpace are listed under People, and users with special requests are encouraged to contact them.

Users with special need to access the Maker Space should get in touch with the Director or one of the Advisors, who are listed under People

We use a LISTSERV mailing list for contacting MakerSpace users, all users are added to it automatically. Instructions to send mail, read archives, or unsubscribe from the LISTSERV are here.


Preventing injury to people (and equipment) is our first priority. To do this, users must demonstrate knowledge and competence. Users can earn a "badge" that certifies their competence. The various badges, and the equipment authorized by that badge, can be found under the Safety and Manuals section.

Along with the badge, the user's RFID card will be recognized to turn on power to equipment. For example, a user who's completed the requirements for the Metal-1 badge will be allowed to use the drill press, vertical band saw, and some of the portable tools. See Machine Access System for more information on how the system works.
