Welcome to the University of Maine's Hackerspace!

The UMaine Hackerspace is a place for UMaine community members to explore technologies that are ever expanding into our daily lives. Come learn how 3D printing is changing the way we design, shop, and interact. See how the internet of things is making appliances around us smarter. Get a taste of Raspberry Pi and see what this credit card sized computer can do for you!

 We invite students, faculty, and staff to stop by and check out what we have. Just remember to sign the safety waiver and you’re good to go.

The Hackerspace is open to the UMaine community for workshops, labs, drop-ins, and open use. We are open Monday through Friday from 11 – 5 PM**. We are located at the Student Union, Room 144. 

The Hackerspace wants your old technology! If you receive a new computer, TV, phone, game console, radio, garage door opener, or anything tech related as a holiday gift, Hackerspace patrons will mine your old gear for parts to  invent something new. Drop off anytime during our regular hours.

For faculty who are interested in using the Hackerspace for a lab or class, please contact Peter Schilling (peter.schilling@maine.edu).

If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions for how we can support your academic pursuits please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Hackerspace will be closed for May & Summer Sessions starting May 5th, 2023.  Please plan accordingly.

Hours of Operation: Monday to Friday, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm**
