Welcome to the UOW Student Makerspace
It’s a place where you can explore far corners of the globe through virtual reality,

  • Learn to use new tech and tools.
  • Put your knowledge and skills to practice.
  • Meet like-minded makers.
The UOW Student Makerspace is a SAF funded space located on the Ground Floor of the Wollongong Campus Library. The space officially opened its doors on the 15th of May 2017.

House rules
This is a space funded by students for students, so we ask that you follow these general rules:
Safety first
Look out for your other makers and get inducted if you want to use any of the specialised machines.
Watch what you wear
Closed toed shoes are required whenever you are in the UOW Student Makerspace, and avoid any baggy clothing that could get you hooked.
No food
No food or drink is allowed in the UOW Student Makerspace so take a Panizzi break when you need to.
Supervision for under 18s
UOW staff and students can access the UOW Student Makerspace, but due to the nature of the space, all children under the age of 18 must be supervised by their parent, guardian or teacher at all times.
Keep it clean
Tidy your work area when you're finished and leave it clean for the makers who come after you.
Become a UOW Student Makerspace mentor!
Our mentors support students and staff with our equipment and communicate with maker groups and workshops.
Becoming a mentor is a great way to keep on top of current technologies and safe work practices, plus enhances your workplace skills in communication, teamwork and customer service.
