A New Kind of Collaboration

Our mission is to help you discover new things: about yourself, your classmates, your campus, and the world. We’ve curated the best tools, materials, and resources to help you expand your skills and flex your portfolio. And when you’re ready to tell your story, share your work with a global community to get real time feedback.

Prototype Your Future

Our physical and digital spaces give you the room to experiment, collaborate, and grow with easy access to new and familiar materials. From embroidery to laser cutters, waterjet to photography, and a wet lab to button makers, the Northeastern making ecosystem empowers you to try something new or elevate an existing passion.

When was the last time you learned something new?

Heard something different?

Met someone unexpected?

Surprised yourself?

It’s all possible here, for students in any field, in person and online.
