Jacobs Hall Makerspace

July 22, 2016 | 1:51 pm

Spring 2021 Update: Following campus guidelines, Jacobs Hall will remain closed to all non-essential community members for the semester. Please continue to check our news post for updates on the status of campus and building operations. For information on how we are working to support research, student coursework, and the Jacobs Community, visit our  Makerspace Access During COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place page.

Jacobs Hall, opened in 2015, is a place for diverse design activity. The building’s flexible, light-filled design studios and wide-ranging equipment labs fill 24,000 square feet, composing an open hub that brings multiple design practices under one roof. Simultaneously an academic building and a community space, Jacobs Hall supports courses, club and competition activities, independent making, and more.
