Makerspaces are shared creative spaces, providing tools and resources to enable various forms of ‘making’. AUT Library believes that the philosophy behind makerspaces allows us to offer alternatives to a traditional library study environment, where our students can incorporate ‘making’ into their library experience. AUT Library is not just a place for books and desks. In diversifying our offering as a library we're working with our community to provide more options in the ways you can use the library.

Throughout the academic year, AUT Library provides creative workshops and events, which are free for AUT students. Keep an eye out on this page for upcoming events and book your place!

Working with faculty

Studio 55 is available to AUT staff as a teaching space. It is not bookable online, so please email Hans for enquiries.

Where is it?

Studio 55 is AUT Library’s makerspace, located on the 3rd floor of the city campus library. It is located next to the Learning Communities space. Pop-up makerspace events at North and South campuses are also on offer during the year. Keep an eye on this page for future dates.
