Maker Row

Maker Row is the campus home for design ideation and prototype development. There are four contiguously located component facilities. Three are open now; one is undergoing remodeling.


  • The Maker Space is the centerpiece of Maker Row. With 4100 ft2 of space as described here, it is the nexus for creative designers and makers from across the campus. Space renovation was completed in 2015-16.
  • The Architecture Millhaus CNC shop has a numerically controlled router operating in a 48” x 96” x 12” volume. It is used to build precise wood and foam structures, under the supervision of Architecture faculty.
  • The wood prototype shop is contiguous to the MakerSpace, has a full complement of hand and power woodworking tools. Access to less-dangerous tools is available to MakerSpace users, but access to circular and radial arm saws will only be allowed under direct supervision.
  • The machine shop with a Bridgeport mill, Clausing lathe, and surface grinders, adjacent to the wood shop and CNC shop. Managed by the University’s Facilities Services Department, it will be used to support ongoing infrastructure maintenance as well as for demonstration and fabrication of specialized metal components.
