Temporary change to opening hours: the Makerspace will open from 12pm to 4pm on Wednesday 28 February.

The Makerspace is a place for RMIT community to come together, share skills and experience, creatively collaborate and learn from each other.

About Makerspace

The City campus Library Makerspace is a place where you can explore your creativity, design and make stuff. You have free access to a growing selection of tools and equipment to help you experiment, problem-solve and bring your designs to life. While we provide some support, the idea is for you to learn by doing. Come as an individual or in a group to work on your projects.

There are of course some important safety rules and guidelines to follow to keep you and other makers safe, and the equipment in working order.

You need to study or work at RMIT to use the Makerspace.

If you have any questions, email us:
