The Makerspace is open to the UW community, and does not offer memberships to the public. All UW-Madison students, faculty, and staff are welcome to come into the Makerspace and use the benches and tables – no permit or fee is required. If you’d like to use the equipment but are not a member of the UW-Madison’s College of Engineering (CoE) you have two options:
Collaborate with a student or staff member from CoE on your project. There are many ways for non-engineering students to collaborate with CoE students: innovation competitions, student orgs, Makerspace workshops – just to name a few. Students from business, arts, law: we encourage you to reach out and engage with CoE students through the Makerspace. See policies for more info.
Obtain an “M-Pass“
Note: If you simply want something milled, lathed,or waterjetted, check out the TEAM-Lab fee-for-service options. You do not have to be a member of the College of Engineering to use this service. They offer great professional consultation and fabrication.
