Labriola Innovation Hub

The Labriola Innovation Hub (InnoHub) at Mines provides state-of-the-art makerspaces where students create, prototype, test, and iterate on their ideas. Home to student-led collaborations, student maker-oriented clubs and project-based competition teams, the Labriola InnoHub is part of the greater Labriola Innovation Complex, which includes the adjacent classroom facilities in McNeil Hall and large work bays for student projects in the Innovation Shop.

“If you go to any makerspace around the country and ask individuals using them what makes the space successful, it is almost always community. And it’s the same here at Mines. I love going into makerspaces and seeing someone working on something cool. The Labriola Innovation Complex will be a central place where students can help each other build projects and community.” 

~ Sevy Swift ’19, Past president of Mines Maker Society
