Makerspaces at VCU
Below, you will find a list of "makerspaces" at VCU. These spaces often include resources such as 3D printers/scanners, large-format printers/scanners for poster-printing and other types of media projects, augmented/virtual reality headsets, green-screen rooms for video projects, audio recording booths, and so much more!
Although some spaces are available to any currently-enrolled VCU student, some are restricted to students who are enrolled in a specific major or who make be taking classes within a specific college/school or department. However, where appropriate, we've provided links to these spaces so you can learn more through the websites of the groups who manage them.
