MAKER SPACE

Create whatever you can imagine

Unleash Space is home to the University of Auckland’s state-of-the-art innovation hub and maker space.


Access the Maker Space

To use the Maker Space and access all the exciting tools, technology, and machinery, you first need to gain access by following a simple three-step process:

  1. Read the Code of Conduct
  2. Take the online quiz
  3. Book a 45 minute Orientation session

Once you’ve attended orientation and done your equipment training sessions you’re all set to unleash your potential and create whatever you can imagine.

Learning to use the equipment

To help you go from playing to experimenting to prototyping, we have a range of resources for you including:

  • Training sessions
  • Create and Make Workshops – entry-level workshops designed to help you learn about the equipment we have by doing a project. Turn up, have a great time and leave with new skills, a creation of your own making and some new friends.
  • Inspire Guides – a suite of quick reference guides to help you to learn how to use a piece of equipment in the Maker Space. Simply click on the equipment you’re interested in below, and you’ll find the guides at the bottom of each page.
