Ujima House in Wembley

Possible new home of London Hackspace, open for hacking from sometime in July 2018 to at least July 2020. At 6000 square feet is (557.4 sq m) across two floors, it reflects an opportunity to use space effectively.

Note that this is not the whole building, we are looking at most of the ground and first floors.

This is the initial wiki page for the space. Lots of Improvements to do is a list of improvements for long-term hacking in the space.

When to Visit

If you haven't visited London Hackspace before, you should drop by on one of our Tuesday open evenings to get a tour around the space. The front door will be open then, and we'll give you a tour and let you know how to join as a member.

If you can't make Tuesday

There are usually people in the space during the daytime (afternoon/evening is better). You are quite likely to get in, but you can't rely on it. If the shutter is down at the front, try the back gate. If you didn't manage to get a tour, pop onto the List to arrange a day when you can be shown the ropes. Drop-in access outside of the regular Tuesday visitor time is not guaranteed.

Crime risk

The London Hackspace is located on Wembley's busy High Road which is known to have a high bike theft rate. If you are planning to bring a bike it is recommended you lock it in the car park, for which we can provide access. Cable locks - even thick ones - are an invitation to bike thieves. It's safer to use a D-lock or separate lock and chain.

Please remember that the London Hackspace is a public environment, especially on Open Evenings, and you should exercise common sense in looking after and securing your valuables.

Access

Access is still being determined. We need to be mindful for both the needs of the members and the tenants on the other floors.
