Become A Member
Here’s where we’re different from other hackerspaces: We’re free to the public. You don’t have to be a member to show up and participate.
We want you more than your dues.
But, being a real space with real bills, the fact remains that if we didn’t have paying members we wouldn’t exist. If you believe in our mission, please consider joining us. We’re all volunteers and every dime goes towards operating expenses and space improvement.
Unallocated Space is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. We strive to serve the local hacker and maker community by providing a place where people can learn new skills, build cool projects, and meet like-minded people. Unlike most hackerspaces, all of our events, classes, and workshops are completely open to the general public for free. We have continued to serve the community in this manner for over seven years thanks to our many generous donors. We do offer some perks to our recurring donors as follows:
- $25/month gets you secure, unthrottled WiFi and access to the VM lab.
- $50/month gets you a box to store your projects at the space*, 2U of rackspace in our server rack*, and a locker*.
- $100/month makes you eligible to become a keyholder and gets you a project box*, 2U of rackspace*, and a locker*.
*May be limited by availability.

You do not have to be a member to petition for an event so long as you have a keyholder to open the space for you.
Advice to New Members:
Bring your laptop. Every Wednesday someone tells us they wish they would’ve brought their laptop.
We’re a working hackerspace. You might walk in on a class in session, a LAN party, robots being assembled, an active soldering/desoldering effort, or a maker building a cello. Most of the time, you’ll see folk tinkering away on their laptops or some manner of product. That doesn’t mean we’re not interested in what you’re working on.
We really are friendly. If someone doesn’t talk to you when you first come in, there’s a good chance the people sitting near you are new too!
We have a ton of equipment which is ready for use, and materials we’re happy to let you use for your own project. Don’t be shy about ‘checking it out’ on your first day. Jump in.
For family membership, each person will receive a 25% discount off of their dues, So, however you want to distribute that discount between members, is up to you, so long as the total amount of dues meets the discounted total.
Example: two keyholders receiving this discount, would pay, in total, $150 per month. So, whether each pays $75 or one pays $100 and the other $50 makes no difference to us. That is up to the individuals.
