Makerspace: Home

Welcome to the Xavier University Library Makerspace!


The Xavier University Library Makerspace is available to all students, faculty, and staff - whether for class or personal projects! We also welcome visitors!

The Makerspace is a creative, dynamic space where people invent, build, and learn. Through a generous grant from SWON and the Xavier University Women of Excellence, the library opened the first academic makerspace in the area in the spring of 2016. With all sorts of technology and tools including 3D printers, 3D scanners, a laser etcher, vinyl cutter, sewing machine, Raspberry Pis, Ozobots, Spheros, and more, students, faculty, and staff can make and create.
