Unallocated Space is a technology-based community center, based out of a 1600+ SF space located in Severn, MD. This space is open to the public at all times and is available for people to come and collaborate on their projects. While we have interests ranging from electronics to woodworking, our primary focus tends to lie in Information Security. Our members offer a steady stream of talks and classes which are free and open to the public. The motto of the space is Teach, Learn, Build!
We have plenty of space for 25+ people to sit and work on any hardware or software projects they would like to build out, in addition to a woodworking area, several televisions, projectors, and project storage.
Thanks to generous donations from our members, we have plenty of shelves worth of hardware ranging from old to modern. We’ve got small electronics, network gear, cellphones, power tools, and anything else you can think of. Participants are encouraged to walk over, grab a computer, install the OS of their choice and get to work. When you are done with what ever you are working on, we only ask that you put it back where you found it.
We have skills ranging from traditional network hacking to software development and hardware design. There are some participants of the space who are just starting to learn what hacking is and others who have been doing it since before there was a computer in every household.
There is no application or cost to join in the fun. Just show up, introduce yourself, bring your project or check out someone else’s. If you’re interested in donating (or becoming a dues-paying member), check out the Donations and Dues page.
There are plenty of parking spaces in the front, on the side, and around the building. We only ask that you attempt to not block another business during normal business hours.
We have a small group known as “The Board” that handles legal, financial and confrontational concerns. There is a larger group that each have keys, that run events, and open the space on a nearly basis.
