757 Labs was a 3800 square foot hackerspace located in Norfolk, Virginia. It was only a few miles away by car from Hampton, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth and Chesapeake. It was a block away from Granby street, with a number of bars and eateries accessible by foot. The front faces the new light rail tracks, with stations being built a few blocks away.

Please visit our website, and jump on the mailing list (you have to subscribe to post to it) if you are interested in coming to visit. An alternative is irc (irc.757.org/#proto or #hackerspace.) The space is located on the ground floor of the 9 story office building, and has direct outside access. Parking is restricted during business hours but evenings and weekends bring 100+ parking spaces.

Our online calendar tracks public events.
