The lab provides the following:

  • Assistance with course projects and assignments
  • Personalized instruction
  • Collaboration with assistants and students to complete complex projects
  • Equipment loan program to complete course projects
  • Tutorials on using the digital media tools, software and equipment
  • Access to an audio recording sound room
  • Access to a photo studio
  • Access to a TV production studio & green screen
  • Access to digital media equipment


Students who are actively enrolled in the Digital Media program, and in good standing, are allowed to borrow select equipment for 24 hours. The loan period may be extended for advanced students for certain equipment when supplies are readily available. Borrowed equipment may be used on or off campus. Some equipment may only be used with the assistance and supervision of a lab assistant. Others require on-campus use only. Equipment available for the lending program includes (but may not be limited to):

  • DSLR cameras / camcorders
  • Lens & filters
  • Tripods & dollies
  • Lights for video / photography
  • Audio recorders & microphones
  • Headphones & slates
  • Drawing tablets
  • Other equipment required for course completion

Students (18 years or older) who wish to borrow equipment will sign a contract. If a student is less than 18 years old, parental signature and consent are required  before said student is allowed to participate in the loan program. We expect students to return borrowed items in the same condition in which items were lent. If borrowed equipment or parts thereof is damaged, destroyed or goes missing for any reason while “checked out,” the person(s) who borrowed the equipment bears full responsibility for its replacement within 30 days of the loss or damage.

Please note that equipment may not always be available, and we reserve the right to limit use of departmental equipment under certain conditions. Please see the lab coordinator for details.
