What is BUILDS?

BUILDS is a student-run hackerspace that provides BU students with all the tools and resources for leading collaborative student tech projects. We take the dirt and grit of the world and give it a shine. We're not led by a single purpose or mission, but we work on projects that are truly interesting to us. We're a self-motivated, skillful bunch who do what we love because we love it!

In BUILDS, it's about the heart. Access is open to members 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Swing by MCS B26 at Boston University to check out our hackerspace. Meetings are every Wednesday at 6:30 PM.
