Welcome to the Maker Hub

Elon students have FREE access to 3D printers, sewing and embroidery machines, laser engravers, and more at the Maker Hub. The Hub is for all Elon students, regardless of major or year. We have two locations on campus and we’re always staffed with student consultants to help you make stuff. Follow us on Instagram @ElonMakers and sign up for our email newsletter.

Thank you!Thank you for Maker Takeover!

You made Maker Takeover awesome! Thank you for making t-shirts, trying power tools, trying our escape room, eating ice cream, and supporting your fellow makers. See a recap of everything Maker Takeover and Kickbox 2024 here.

New to the Maker Hub?Laser cut cup holding sharpies

Great! Grab a friend and visit a Maker Hub location. And if you need something to make, stop in and ask for help making a vinyl sticker. It’ll talk less than 30 minutes, and you can personalize your laptop or water bottle with it.

And if you want to get trained on our advanced tools like laser engravers, sewing machines, and 3D printers, visit the Maker Hub’s Moodle site.

We’re staffed by students who love helping people make things. Have a question? Stop by and ask or email us.

See you in the Hub!
