The TEC Studio is our flagship location on West Campus. This space features a large variety of resources ranging from hand tools to digital fabrication equipment, meeting rooms and workspaces.


The many resources available at the TEC studio are supported by knowledgeable staff providing expertise and consultation to meet your project or learning goals. The studio is open to all of the Duke community regardless of background, experience, affiliation (student, staff, faculty), or use case (personal and academic). The Co-Lab at the TEC is also the home to most of our Roots workshops and technical office hours
