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
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.
Trainings are 1-on-1 in-person. Visit the Makerspaces at William & Mary website and get started by clicking the Make an Appointment tab.
Access to the equipment in the Makerspace is by appointment only. Stop by the service desk in front of the Swem Makerspace to make an appointment or ask questions. You can also request an appointment by clicking the Make an Appointment on the Makerspaces at William & Mary website: makerspaces.wm.edu.
