Currently we have a room in the EE (EE102) building of the university that is restricted for use to only staff and students of the University of Newcastle. Passing an OH&S Quiz is required for admission to the space, due to safety rules that are in place by the university.


Our Makerspace is continually adding equipment and parts for the members to use, at the moment we have:

  • Two oscilloscopes
  • Soldering equipment
  • Several power supplies
  • PCB prototyping mill
  • Computers
  • Laser Printer
  • Fridge
  • Storage facilities and lockers.
  • Projector
  • Textbook library
  • Whiteboard

Several high-end computers with dual monitors, additional testing equipment (such as function generators etc), are proposed to further expand the tools available to our members.

We have a mailing list for anyone not with the university as a point of contact for a external space.

There is also a proposal for a public makerspace in Newcastle that will be accessible to the general public.
