Hackerspace IFUSP is a hackerspace located in the main building of the Institute of Physics of the University of São Paulo (thus its name), it has been created recently in 2018 thanks to the efforts of Prof. Dr. Alexandre Suaide and some students. The space available is a large room at "underground" level right after the main entrance to the building. Because the room that hosts the hackerspace is university property members must be associated with the institute, however the space is open to everyone.


The institute is located within the Armando de Sales Oliveira University Town (CUASO) in the Butantã neighborhood in São Paulo city, the nearest station to the institute is the Butantã Metro Station (Via 4 - Yellow Line), from the station you can get to the institute by car, transit, riding or walking (although it a bit of a long walk). There are buses from the subway station to the institute (Lines 8012-10 and 8022-10) every now and then (these buses are free to university members). Transit is a convenient way to go, in front of the entrance to the institute there are two bus stops, one for each bus line (IAG - 8012-10 and IF - 8022-10). You can also ride, in Western São Paulo there are Yellow bikes that can be rented for as little as BRL 1 for a 15 minute ride.

   Address: Rua do Matão, 1371 - Butantã - São Paulo, SP - Brazil


Access to university campus is open to the public, however, to enter the building, university non-members must sign up at reception first, then access to the hackerspace is completely open and free. We are the first door in the hallway to the right of the entrance. Non-members can join us whenever the space is open, which usually happens when a member is present.
