About this space

The makerspace helps Harvey Mudd further its work toward fostering inclusive excellence on campus while also creating new educational and community engagement opportunities for its students and the students, faculty and staff of the other Claremont Colleges.

Located in the first floor of the Scott A. McGregor Computer Science Center at the corner of Platt and Dartmouth, the Makerspace is also connected to the Libra Complex just south of the machine and wood shops.
