Orientations are finished for this semester, they will resume at the beginning of the next semester.

The Design Lab is a 2D digital production space and hub for student interaction and collaboration. We provide access to design tools, software, equipment, and printing services around the creative needs of all students. Students get to bring their own paper and experimental materials to print on our vast array of printers. Other that the basic printers like the laser and inkjet printers we have to offer access to specialty machines like the risograph printers, vinyl cutter, flatbed cutter, roll scanner, and UV Printer.

The lab specialize in commercial booklet production with access various binding methods and trained personnel who can assist you from per-post to post booklet production.  

This is also the only lab that allows you to bring your own paper stock. The lab does not provide any paper to students or faculty.
