Maker Hub hours during exams and Winter break

Maker Hub will be open normal hours during exam week and offer limited hours over winter break. 

Exam week hours

The Maker Hub will be open during exam week! If you need a moment to de-stress from exams and work on a project, both of our locations will be open during our regular hours (Su-Th 1-9, Fr-Sa 1-6).

However, due to the exam schedules of our staff, it is possible that there will not always be a staff member available to guide you. We ask that if a staff member is not present, you clean up after yourself as usual and only use equipment you feel confident you know how to operate. If a staff member is not present in Maker Hub – Downtown, the Safety Zone and the laser engraver will be closed. Be aware of this as you plan on when to visit.

Winter break hours

The Maker Hub (Downtown and Colonnades) will close for the semester after finals on Thursday, Dec. 14 and will re-open for January Term on Wednesday, Jan. 3, at 1 p.m. 

Now the good news.
If you’re still working on last-minute projects, the Maker Hub – Downtown will be open limited hours over Winter Break. You’ll be able to use any equipment that doesn’t require special training, like sewing machines, 3D printers, electronic components, and hand tools. If you’ve already attended a Basic Training and Safety course, the CNC router, power saws, and laser engraver will be available.

  • Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2-4 p.m.

We’re also offering a Laser Engraver: Basic Training and Safety on Monday, Dec. 18, at 9:30 a.m. After you attend that session, you’ll be approved to use the laser engraver. Not sure what to make with a laser engraver? Here are a few ideas.
