What We Do

The CoMotion MakerSpace provides the tools and resources to build and prototype your next great idea! Come to the MakerSpace to experience a social, multidisciplinary, and collaborative environment that connects you with UW’s creative community. Open to UW students, staff, and faculty, affiliates, and the public.

Open Hours

Our open hours vary from quarter to quarter, so please check here for each quarter’s hours. Per our no working alone policy for shop safety, users should only access the space during these open hours. If you’re new to our space, please see our Getting Started page.

Safety Orientations

T/W/Th 5PM

The MakerSpace opens on September 25, 2019 for the fall quarter. Fall hours are Weekdays and Sundays, 2pm to 8pm. For the first two weeks, we will hold additional safety orientations on Mondays and Fridays. We are closed during all university holidays. If a university holiday falls next to a weekend (e.g. Friday or Monday), we will be closed that weekend as well.

We are closed for Veteran’s Day (Nov. 11), Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 28 – 29) and Intersession (Dec. 6 – Jan. 6).

First Time Users

Come for a quick chat/tour with us and learn about the different and uniques things that you can make!

Or if you already know that you want to use our MakerSpace, attend an Orientation & Safety Training!  This training is mandatory for anyone wanting to use the MakerSpace.  The training is about an hour and you do not need to register in advance.

Once you have received the safety training, passed a quiz, and filled out a form, you can start making!

Note: Closed-toe shoes required at all times in our facility.
