Let's Make Something New Different Fun Unique Together

The Champaign-Urbana (CU) Community Fab Lab is a makerspace – a place where people can gather to work on creative projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge – located on the University of Illinois: Urbana-Champaign campus.

In our makerspace, you’ll find tools and software you can utilize to make projects all your own. During our Open Hours, we are open to visitors from all around the community and campus.

Our Mission

Access for all: Inspire creativity, discovery, and dynamic learning

The Champaign-Urbana (CU) Community Fab Lab supports campus and community members through research, university courses, community engagement and programming, professional development, youth summer camps, and design and fabrication support for all students, staff, faculty, and community members. We seek to play a boundary spanning role across those areas and intersect with on- and off-campus communities. We are committed to creating an open, community-oriented, and capacity-building makerspace, fostering a dynamic experiential learning environment, and sparking interdisciplinary groundbreaking discoveries.
