Six 27-inch Apple iMac computers with 4 gb of RAM. (Note: Like other lab computers on campus, any files you save to the hard drive will be wiped once you log out, so always bring a hard drive or USB drive large enough to hold all your project files.)

Card Readers

Each computer has a Griffin Simplifi hub for reading popular memory cards (CF, SD, or MemoryStick) and connecting USB drives.


The lab has Canon LiDE 200 scanners for high-quality scans up to 4800 dpi and an Epson 1000XL tabloid scanner capable of scanning originals up to 12”x17”.


Print to either of the lab’s HP printers: a 1200-dpi black-and-white laser printer and a 600-dpi color printer. Both are connected to UniPrint.


Hours for Media Assistance

Monday – Thursday  1 – 9 p.m.

The Learning Studio does not provide portable storage for your projects. When working on a large media project, remember to bring a hard drive or USB drive with adequate space for your files. As with other campus computer labs, each of our computer’s internal hard drives is purged routinely.
