Creativity in Action: the Library Makerspaces

The library makerspaces empower the Seattle University community by providing the resources to explore digital and physical making in spaces that are grounded in inclusivity and open-mindedness.

The Billodue Makerspace is open to all students, all majors and driven by the belief that making is a community inclusive practice for all. There are many program activities such as learning fiber arts, jewelry making, repair sessions and using digital fabrication techniques like laser cutting and 3D printing.

The Media Production Center is available to all students with many program offerings such as how to use the studio and editing room equipment for video, photographic and audio production. Students can also create graphic stickers or learn about animation and generative AI. The center even has a screening room to watch movies on a big screen!
