This is the place for big ideas.

A "catalyst" makes change happen. That's what we are. That's what we do.

At CATalyst Studios in the Main Library, connect with new people and technology in a space that welcomes everyone. Our friendly staff and students will work with you to make amazing things happen. Join us to learn new skills and connect with others.

CATalyst Studios opened in January 2020 and is an expansion of the former iSpace.
