Davidson continues to create spaces that encourage digital learning and collaboration. While most digital studies courses take place in Studio D or in the library basement digital classroom, our students also take advantage of co-curricular and learning opportunities in the campus makerspace and learning resources center.

Studio M

Studio M is Davidson's makerspace, a community-oriented workspace designed to encourage collaboration between people with common interests. As a part of the college's Innovation and Entrepreneurship initiative, the studio allows exploration and development of new technologies, invigorates intellectual inquiry by encouraging new modes of thought and learning, and sparks discussion and collaboration across conventional disciplines.

If you have a question about how to make a particular object, come talk with us. If you have a project in mind, we can help you develop it. Everything starts with a visit.

Located in the south basement of Chambers, Studio M is open Sunday through Friday. Stop by Monday to Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (we usually break for lunch hour at 12:30 p.m.). We also offer evening hours Sunday through Thursday 7-9:30 p.m.
