A Hub for Student Entrepreneurs
The eGarage is a venture creation and prototyping space designed for student entrepreneurs. It serves as a hub for students across campus to come together and explore their entrepreneurial ideas and interests. Located on the floor beneath the village, this startup space has it all – a physical space for entrepreneurs to develop, create and invent as well as programmatic resources like community office hours and pop-up discussions. Members have access to hundreds of entrepreneurial-minded peers, which makes networking and relationship-building easy. The eGarage is open 24/7 for students, so work when the inspiration strikes!

The eGarage’s designation as an IP-free zone sets the tone for a collaborative learning environment. Students own 100% of the intellectual property developed here.
A wide range of prototyping equipment is available in the eGarage for student use.
