The Makers Lab at UCSF

Open to the UCSF Community

As the center of learning, inspiration, and exploration at UCSF, the Makers Lab invites anyone with a valid UCSF ID to join us and unleash their natural creativity. We provide free access to new tools and environments that foster creativity and discovery.

Be prepared for hands-on activities, demos, best practices, and a lot of fun. Registration is strongly encouraged.

The Makers Manifesto

Break the Ice

Introduce yourself to other makers in the space. You never know who you'll meet and what you'll learn.

Fail (at least a little)

We’re here to create and experiment. Ask questions if you’re not sure how something works and take your time.

Care and Share

Respect the space and each other. Refrain from eating in the lab and clean up after yourself. Report broken equipment or tools.

Boldly go where no one has gone before

Be innovative. Respect copyright, patent, and trademark law and refrain from making dangerous or illegal items.

Open to the UCSF Community with ID

Mon–Fri from 10am to 6pm (detailed schedule)
530 Parnassus Ave, Room 345
Contact us to book the space for groups.
