Student Resources

Fabrication Labs (FAB Labs)

Located in Daggy Hall 253 and 257, the fabrication labs are predominantly used by students affiliated with the School of Design and Construction (SDC). With roughly 3500 square feet of maker-space, the fabrication labs offer digital fabrication services by trained lab technicians, industrial-grade analog machines, model-scale analog machines, hand-tool check out, and many more services. Users must first complete a safety orientation, with additional training to use tools and machines. For more information, visit the Fabrication Lab’s website or contact David Drake at

Frank Innovation Zone (FIZ)

The Frank Innovation Zone (FIZ) is located on the ground floor of Dana Hall and is available to WSU students, faculty, and staff. This innovative space offers students many resources that help bring their ideas to life. These resources include fabrication tools, testing and measuring equipment, storage areas, meeting spaces, and supervised ‘maker-space’ with supportive technology. The FIZ also includes a service center where students can purchase a variety of different hardware using COUGAR CASH. This area is a great catalyst for student engagement and serves as a great starting point for any project.
