Welcome to THE HUB!

Florida State University's new Innovation Hub is the result of a $2.5 million investment by the Provost to deepen FSU's distinctive commitment to continuous innovation. Located at the heart of FSU's campus, the Innovation Hub fills the first floor of the Louis Shores building.

The 14,000 square foot space is designed to support Design Thinking with the latest technologies, a Digital Fablab, Virtual Reality Lab, Hackerspace, and a variety of spaces and technologies for collaborative work supporting groups from 2 to 140. The Innovation Hub is supported by nineteen partner departments within the University.

Whether you're looking for help with your latest invention, looking to extend your knowledge of innovative technologies and techniques, looking for a quiet comfortable place to relax, or looking to meet up with friends or make new friends, the Hub is your place to have fun while discovering your inner innovator.
