The Makerspace is open to all Curtin University students, staff and adult community members.
Due to the nature of our Makerspace’s environment and the extra safety precautions required, the space is not available to children.
You are welcome to drop in anytime during our opening hours or email us with your query.
The Makerspace is open Monday to Friday, from 9am-5pm during semester and from 1pm-5pm during semester break.
It will be closed on Curtin observed public holidays and during the University’s end of year closedown period.
Curtin Makers is our online community for sharing ideas, projects, and skills.
Please refer to our Equipment List.
Equipment is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you need to complete coursework, please do not leave this until your due date. You can book ahead of time with Makerspace staff, or via email. Bookings are subject to availability and use case.
To reserve access to our Media Room, you can make a booking. The room is only available for media room purposes (e.g. recording, filming, editing with the provided equipment). If you are not using the room for AV purposes you may be asked to move to another location.
There is no fee to use the equipment or materials, and as such, we do not provide a service where we do the work for you. Priority is given to course-related projects. Consumables are for everyone, so be mindful of this and not use things to excess.
Our Makerspace staff can provide information, help you to locate the equipment you need and assist you to get started. We promote self-directed learning and are not necessarily experts in all the activity areas we support.
The Makerspace facilitates a range of face-to-face workshops and drop in sessions on occassion, throughout the year. See available workshops
Although COVID restrictions have been relaxed, we encourage good personal hygiene in the Makerspace. Please don’t attend the Makerspace if you are feeling unwell or waiting for COVID-19 test results.
Curtin would like to pay respect to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members of our community by acknowledging the traditional owners of the land on which the Perth campus is located, the Whadjuk people of the Nyungar Nation; and on our Kalgoorlie campus, the Wongutha people of the North-Eastern Goldfields.
