CAMD offers a wide range of cutting-edge studio, production, performance, and lab facilities—delivering hands-on learning opportunities that are at the core of our curricula. In these creative spaces, students hone and refine raw creativity into ideas that impact society, influence culture, and transform the world.
The mission of the Northeastern University College of Arts, Media, and Design Media Studios Organization is to provide the tools and technical resources to support exploration and innovation in communication, design, and the arts. We promote the integration of media and technology into student and faculty work by providing entry-level trainings, intermediate-level workshops, and advanced research support.
The Media Studios Organization (MSO) oversees the operation and programming of all media-related facilities within the College of Arts, Media, and Design (CAMD), including: computer labs, experiential technologies labs, a makerspace, shop, photo and print labs, production labs, a communication studies lab, journalism labs, music studios, and theater studios. The organization also oversees the Information Technology (IT) and Audiovisual (AV) needs of CAMD, with additional support provided by the university.
The media labs are generally open to all students, faculty, and staff within CAMD. However, some labs give priority access to certain majors/courses. See the individual lab pages for more details.
