The DeArmond MakerSpace is for use by University of Oregon students, staff and faculty from any department. Use of the facility by others is only allowed for special UO-sanctioned events with prior written approval by PSCRL Staff.
Because we are still learning ourselves, the MakerSpace's hours are restricted to times our best experts are likely to be in. For winter 2017, that means:
- Monday through Thursday: 8 am - 7 pm (maybe 8 sometime)
- Friday: 8am - 6pm
- Saturday: noon - 6 pm
- Sunday: usually closed, although special arrangements in advance are possible.
We hope to gradually expand open hours to more closely align with the Price Science Commons full schedule.
Prior to using the MakerSpace, each patron must review the use policies, sign the UO release waiver, and pass the safety test. Here is the link where you can do all of that:
We have a variety of equipment which comes with a variety of policies and some of which may ultimately cost a little bit to use. Please note that many items may only be used after one has received training in their use; plan accordingly. Training workshops are offered frequently (but here again, we're starting slow).
If you have questions about using the space, how to get training, or whether your project is something we could help you with, please ask at the desk or email us.
