The Makerspace

Encouraging Collaboration and Creativity

The Harvey Mudd makerspace is an 8,000 sq. ft., student-run facility for providing access to tools, resources, space, and storage to work on personal and academic projects for 7C students, faculty and staff. We are dedicated to making this a space where everyone feels comfortable working on a variety of projects, from electronics to sewing or artistic endeavors. The makerspace helps Harvey Mudd further its work toward fostering inclusive excellence on campus while also creating new educational and community engagement opportunities for the students and faculty of all 7Cs.

Located on the first floor of the Scott A. McGregor Computer Science Center at the corner of Platt and Dartmouth, the makerspace is also connected to the Libra Complex just south of the machine and wood shops.


The Makerspace is accessible to 7C students, faculty and staff 24/7.

Stewards are available from 2–10 p.m. from Monday–Thursday, 2–7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 2-9 p.m. on Sunday. They can help with checking out tools or equipment and providing assistance.

Portrait of Matthew Spencer.

“The Makerspace helps students collaborate across the 5Cs, blend technical work and liberal arts and find a home on campus. It’s a unique space and community among the 5C’s, and I’m excited to work with the community to help it grow.”
