Become an Elon Maker

The Maker Hub is a place with tools, supplies, and people to help you explore ideas, learn how things work and make stuff. Free and open to all Elon students, faculty and staff. We have two locations on campus and we’re always staffed by a student Consultant who’s ready to help you learn tools and talk about ideas. Stop by during our open hours and learn more!

Take a Make Break

This spring, the Maker Hub is inviting you to take a break and make something! Take & Make kits are back – these portable kits give you everything you need to make a simple project anywhere you’d like in just a few minutes. New this fall are Stay & Make kits – projects that are a little more involved and use a tool in one of the Maker Hub locations. It’s a great introduction to some of our most popular tools like laser engravers and sewing machines.

Explore Our Creative Community

We promote a Maker Mindset, which includes you taking ownership of your learning, developing intrinsic motivation, and embracing failure as an essential component of the learning process.

We offer two convenient campus locations, in addition to partnerships with other facilities in the community. Learn more about each site, how to access them and available equipment.
