TechShop provides access to wide array of high quality machines, tools and design software, and over 75 in-depth training courses to teach equipment use and develop new skills.
Washington University is excited to announce a partnership with TechShop that includes discounted memberships available to all University faculty, students and staff.

TechShop was founded in 2006 as the first membership-based workshop and fabrication studio of its kind. The workshop provides access to wide array of high quality machines, tools and design software, and over 75 in-depth training courses to teach equipment use and develop new skills.

The new maker space will also accommodate custom team building events and well-equipped meeting space for its members.

Washington University faculty, students and staff can apply for one of the school-purchased memberships for classroom or educational purposes, laboratory research, and/or personal use. Requests for research and personal use will be awarded through a lottery system.

To apply for one of the free memberships, please contact Amy Johnson (amy.johnson@wustl.edu) for more details. When doing so, please indicate to Amy whether you plan on using the membership for educational/classroom, research, or personal use.
