Swem Makerspace

In accordance with university policy regarding the prevention of Covid-19 on campus, The Makerspaces at William & Mary are closed until further notice.

The Makerspaces at William & Mary are pleased to offer a range of tools and state-of-the-art equipment in the Swem Makerspace for use by all current students, staff, and faculty.  The makerspace is in room #139 next to the Learning Center on the main floor of Swem. The following equipment is available:

  • Range of 3D printers

  • Variety of 3D scanners

  • Vinyl cutter

  • Selection of stitching machines

  • Pin-back button making machine

Using the equipment is a fun, engaging, and creative experience. However, machines and successful projects do require a small amount of background knowledge for optimal performance. To ensure that our machines and patrons stay happy, W&M Libraries require that all patrons who wish to schedule time with our equipment agree to our common sense safety policies.
