Welcome to the Makerspace at the University of Nevada, Reno Innevation Center! We believe that everyone is a maker and that making should be accessible to all. In the Makerspace, we support that vision by providing equipment, knowledge and collaboration space to Innevation Center members, University students and employees and the community.

Using the Makerspace

Down in the Makerspace you’ll find student staff ready to help with all your Maker needs. Our staff provide training and support to help you accomplish your project goals. On your first visit, you’ll take a brief safety quiz and start your equipment training.
