The Maker Hub is the GFU College of Engineering space for engineering and design. It is a 15,000 square foot space located in Klages, and it consists of several design areas including work spaces, meeting rooms, technical shops, and a central toolroom. There is a 6,000 square foot central room known simply as "[[The Hub]]" which provides a large work area with benches and tools for general making activities. The Maker Hub was designed to serve the needs of the engineering program, including senior design, servant engineering, engineering principles, and other engineering courses and projects. The potential exists to service a broader set of projects for other majors at the university.

The Maker Hub has very limited staff and hired student employees. It is largely student run, with student volunteers on hand to train you and help you utilize the space effectively. Students are encouraged to "own" the space.

In any public space, there has to be some set of rules that govern the activity in the space. Ideally, we would just use the clever “Rule 0: Don’t make me make a rule.” But, we felt it was better to come up with some overall guiding principles rather than a list of rules. Clearly, there are some obvious “rules” that get implied from these principles, but, we believe that if you embrace the principles, the rules will take care of themselves. These principles we like to call, the three commandments. (See what we did there? - Christian school - reference to the commandments? Get it?)

(Not just for engineers!)

Welcome to the George Fox University Maker Hub Wiki!

The Maker Hub is a makerspace open to all George Fox University members for innovating, designing, and creating. It is a 16,000 square foot space located in the Klages Center that comprises several design areas including technical shops, a central tool room, a computer lab, meeting rooms, and general work spaces. The Maker Hub was designed as a creative space to facilitate learning, encourage entrepreneurship, and add value to the GFU student's educational experience. It's a collaborative community that is home to senior design and servant engineering teams, guest lectures and community events, design competitions, project exhibitions, and training classes. We also have fun on occasion.


Our Getting Started page will walk you through the steps necessary to get connected and use the equipment available in the Maker Hub.
