ASU Chandler Innovation Center Hub249


Subject: COVID-19 Update: Hub249 temporary closure 


Dear Hub249 Members,  


As of March 16th, 2020, per new ASU policy with public health guidelines and out of safety concerns for our Hub249 members and ASU staff, the Hub249 makerspace and ASU Chandler Innovation Center will be closed.  


In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for social distancing and in support of the containment strategy, all ASU events, and events in ASU-managed spaces, have been moved to an online platform and/or postponed and ASU, like many other organizations, has moved to a remote work protocol for its staff.  


As such, as of today, we are temporarily pausing operations of the Hub249 makerspace in line with ASU’s policy, guided from the CDC and the Arizona Department of Health Services, and in consultation with the city of Chandler.  


All memberships will be paused and members will not be billed during this temporary closure.  


If you have any questions in general about Hub249 or your membership, please contact us via email at and we will follow up shortly.  


Our team will update you via email regarding a timeline for reopening. As soon as we are able to safely welcome you back, we look forward to having you back at Hub249.
