The DCP + CotA Fabrication Lab at the University of Florida was created out of a collaboration between the School of Architecture and the School of Art + Art History. Since the inception of the lab in 2009, we have served our University of Florida students as well as faculty and staff, the Gainesville community and more. In 2015, the lab expanded into Infinity Hall where it continues to flourish and grow. We offer the lowest prices in the United States and access to some of the only fabrication machines in the Central Florida Area. The Fab Lab is open to the everyone: University of Florida affiliates and the public.
In addition to our facilities, we also offer an internship program to University of Florida Students:
The Fab Lab Internship program is a two semester, 8 hour a week commitment. We are looking for students with fabrication experience, a solid work ethic and a willingness to learn. If this sounds like you, please submit you resume and a cover letter stating why you would be a good fit with us here at the lab.
