The Tech Hub is Buffalo State College’s 3D Digital Fabrication Lab and Classroom. We are open to serve the BSC community as well as the wider community of Buffalo. Whatever you are looking to do, our knowledgeable student technicians can help you find  information and get started using the equipment that you need.   


Our hours can fluctuate by semester as we try to work with our technician's class schedules but we are generally open 35 - 40 hours per week. Please check our schedule as it changes every semester.
