About the Makerspace


The Cal Poly Humboldt Library Makerspace is located on the second floor of the Library (room 205) across from the whiteboard study spaces.   

The Makerspace is a place where you can brainstorm, prototype and iteratively design and create physical and digital projects with opportunities to get feedback from other makers in the community.  The makerspace can also simply be a place to spend time getting familiar with tools for creativity and innovation, and to connect with other makers. 

Near the Makerspace you’ll also find the Augmented Reality Sandbox, flight simulator, virtual reality (VR) station, and creativity stations. We are excited to currently offer free 3D printing in the Makerspace for students, faculty, and staff!

The Makerspace and equipment are available to students, faculty, and staff in any discipline or at any level of experience. There are a number of resources available to help you get started including workshops, pop-up events to try out technology, Meet Up hours, librarians, fellow makers, and makerspace student assistants. Another great way to learn is to connect with others working on projects in the space! We encourage you to be creative, share, connect, and collaborate while making. Make a paper zine or a button, draw your own 3D model in virtual reality, edit a video you made on a personal adventure--there are all kinds of opportunities and ways of making that there is something for everyone! Make something to express yourself or relax, do something creative with your academic work or to change the world, or join us in the Library Makerspace to find a supportive community of other makers.

Where are we?

The Makerspace is located in Library 205, on the west side of the second floor next to the Children's Collection.


Connecting with our Team

Librarians Consultations.  Have a class project where you need to create using digital tools, or something more hands on?  Meet with a librarian to talk through your project and ideas.  Email us at makerspace@humboldt.edu if you want to make an appointment.

Makerspace Student Assistants will be available during the MeetUp hours and regular open hours to assist with projects, help find answers to maker questions, and show of different tools and equipment you can use in the space and check out! They can refer you to a librarian for more support if needed.
