The IDEA Hub Makerspace in Reinert-Alumni Library is a creative technology workspace where you can access tools for design, making and learning. You can use 3D printers, vector cutters, laser cutters, vacuum formers, and more to bring your imagination to life while you explore some of the latest tools for creation. We are open to Creighton library patrons, and look forward to assisting you with your next IDEA!

About the Makerspace

Library patrons can use the makerspace to learn the available tooling and create almost anything they can imagine. We charge for Makerspace materials used, but training and design assistance are free of charge, and patrons may bring in outside materials for approval to use on Makerspace equipment.
