Carmichael Makerspace

BeAM@Carolina is a network of makerspaces where any UNC student, staff, or faculty member can join the UNC maker community in the design and creation of physical objects for education, research, entrepreneurship, and recreation. Makers can participate in studio work, training sessions, workshops, and class maker projects through a number of courses taught across campus. BeAM patrons can collaborate and build valuable skills in spaces equipped with emerging technologies such as 3D printing and laser cutting, along with areas dedicated to sewing and woodworking. Including our partnership with the Kenan Science Library (located in Venable Hall), makers have four locations from which to choose to fit their schedules and making interests: Murray Hall, Hanes Art Center, and Carmichael Residence Hall.

Carolina Housing has partnered with BeAM to provide a Makerspace in Carmichael residence hall to make it easy and convenient for residents on campus to start making and creating! It also provides a unique space to engage with each other and for staff to put on fun programs and events.
