The Factory: The Factory @ Discovery Park

The Factory Makerspace @ DP

The Factory @ Discovery Park is an extension of our first location from main campus. In developing out the collection we aim to house resources in support of the academic goals of the curriculum, while also giving students a dreamspace to create, invent, and explore. Below is information about our collection at DP.

In compliance with UNTs, proactive response to health concerns for our UNT community, The Factory Makerspace in Willis will be available to accept materials to be returned during a reduced time period from 10 am-2 pm on the 16-20.

However both locations will be CLOSED to the public for March 16-29, 2020. We will continue to evaluate and print 3D models in support of classes as well as research. 

Circulation of materials will be suspended at this time. We continue to monitor the situation. If you are needing a consultation, when possible we will set this up as online consultations. We also are working to get determine which workshops we can offer in an online setting.

All workshops for the week of March 16-22, 2020 have also been canceled. Please stay up to date with UNT
