Access to state-of-the-art and traditional tools at Parsons facilitates your creative growth and gives you hands-on experience using everything you’ll need as a maker. Extensive, adaptable work spaces are available at our new 28,000 square foot Making Center hub, which opened in fall 2016 for student use, and at satellite making spaces across the university. In total, our making spaces comprise over 50,000 square feet. Professional technicians and facility managers are on hand to support individual student needs and to lead training sessions and workshops for students and faculty. Learn more about the Making Center Hub.
Hours of operation are determined on a semester basis to support curricular needs across The New School. Please check each resource page for specific hours. The Making Center resources will be closed on official holidays and days when the University cancels classes, unless otherwise noted.
Funding for the Parsons Making Center came, in part, from Kay Unger Family Foundation; Unger is an acclaimed fashion designer, entrepreneur, alumna of Parsons, and chair of the Parsons Board of Governors.
