Welcome to the Maker Lab

The Maker Lab is located in Sobrato Campus for Discovery and Innovation, Bldg 402, Room 1124 and is available to SCU students, staff, faculty, and affiliates. Equipment-specific training and demonstration of competency is required for the use of specific equipment located in the Maker Lab. Training sessions, open hours, and other important information for the Maker Lab can be found on our calendar.


Several Maker Lab training sessions will be held throughout the year, with times posted on the calendar. There are several types of training courses, each relevant to the use of specific Lab equipment. The Basic Training class is the first class to take, and it is a prerequisite for all other training courses. Space is limited. *Users should bring their photo ID to the training sessions. To enroll, contact

SCU students, staff and faculty who have completed Basic Training are allowed access to the Maker Lab during Open Hours. The schedule for Open Hours are posted on the calendar and participation is approved on a first come, first served basis.

A minimum of 3 students must sign up for the training or it will be canceled.

If you completed Maker Lab training when we were located in Bannan Engineering Labs, you need to redo training at our new location. You can verify your level of training in the Maker Lab.


Open hours are run by Maker Lab Supervisors. We offer both scheduled times and on-call based on availability. Supervisors are only allowed to supervise based on the level of training they have completed. This information can be found in event details on the Maker Lab calendar.
