About Us

The Rutgers Makerspace is a facility on Livingston Campus that provides free machine access to all Rutgers students, faculty, and staff to help them turn their ideas into reality. The Makerspace exists for the makers, DIY-ers, entrepreneurs, and the curious to learn how to design, test, iterate, and build whatever you can imagine.
