Great news! The Makerspace is reopening soon! Date to be confirmed.

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. We give you access to a growing selection of tools and equipment to help you experiment and problem-solve. 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. It is free for all RMIT students and staff.

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.

If you have any questions, email us:
