Digital Media Editing Spaces

The Multimedia Studio (MMS) is located on the second floor of the Library LB2-216. It has eleven iMac computers with a variety of post-production software including Final Cut Pro, Pro Tools, Adobe Creative Suite 4, and more. Students and Faculty can reserve time in this lab for three hour blocks Monday through Thursday 9:00am-9:00pm, Friday 9:00am – 4:00pm and Saturdays 11:00am – 4:00pm.  

The Digital Media Lab 121  (DML 121) is located in UW2 121. It serves as a teaching, tutoring, and open lab space.  The DML 121 has twenty-four iMac computers with a variety of post-production software including Final Cut Pro, Pro Tools, Adobe Creative Suite 4, and more. The DML 121 is generally open during all building hours, however there are courses and other activities scheduled in that room each quarter so it is advised that people check the DML 121 calendar to make sure the room is available.  During tutoring hours we have tutors on site to assist students, faculty, and staff with digital media tools.
