Goals:

Our space is being designed to have meetings that are not mandatory but will include a lot of current research being done by the membership at large. We have worked hard to make this a place where you are home away from home.

The Space:

Unallocated Space (UAS) is an active hackerspace location in Anne Arundel County (Severn, MD) that supports the DC / Baltimore Metro Area. As an open technology-base​d community lab, we invite you to share your creativity! The motto of the space is Teach, Learn, Build (Party)!

Our mission is to foster our community to "Teach, Learn, Build”. Our 1600+ sqft space is minutes from BWI, between Baltimore and Washington DC. Equipped with a wide range of tools, UAS welcomes DIY tech enthusiasts of all skill levels and interests. Our space enables everyday people to share ideas and work on group and individual projects. Our facility has resources that support electronics (soldering, circuits), fabrication (wood, plastics, metal), and is fully wired/wireless network with a VM lab for network experiments. Our classroom can handle 20+ students and hosts courses in electrics, web development, programming and computer networking.

The Inventory/Storage Area is an area that has several heavy duty shelves worth of hardware ranging from old to modern computers for use by the participants, small electronics, routers and switches, Wireless equipment, RFID equipment, Several other networking components, Cellphones, and what ever else you can think of. This area is designed to house equipment that is not currently in a state of being used for a project. Participants are encouraged to walk over, pull a box down, install the OS of their choice and start working. When you are done with what ever you are working on, we only ask that you put it back.

The bay door area, yes a hacker space with a roll up bay door. What a novel concept. This area is designed to house our large industrial equipment as we get it. The bay door is also used to load and unload everything that is brought into or traded out of the space. PLEASE DO NOT PARK HERE.


Our members offer a steady stream of free and public events, classes, activities, and anything that gets people building, making, and learning. We serve the community on 100% donated funds as a non-profit organization. For more information, visit unallocatedspac​e.org for upcoming events or contact info@unallocate​dspace.org.

Membership:

We have a varied membership, called participants, that have skills ranging from traditional network hacking to software development and hardware design. There are some participants of the space who are just starting to learn what hacking is and others who have been doing it since before there was a computer in every household.

Dues:

We do not have a traditional membership structure. It basically comes down to name your own dues. We ask that you contribute $100 per month, which may change over the next few months depending upon interest. If $100 per month is too much of a financial strain we ask that you contribute whatever monetary value you can and then donate your time. We have countless chores that always need to be done so that is a good way to pull your weight. If you are a student who doesn’t have money at all, we only ask that you contribute what you can, when you can. We do not want to lose your value as a hacker just because you have fallen on troubling financial times.

Parking:

There are an almost unlimited number of unassigned “unallocated” parking spaces in the front, on the side, and around the building. We only ask that you attempt to not block another business during normal business hours. After hours park pretty much wherever you like.
