Use the links on the menu to navigate to other facilities commonly used by the DTC students on the Pullman campus.
The Creativity Suite
The Creative Suite (CS) is located on the 4th floor of Avery Hall in Avery 451. The focus of the CS is to expose students to cutting edge technologies that are rapidly becoming a part of the creative industries. It will also provide students with a space to work on projects that may take a longer amount of time to produce.
There are three rooms that can be reserved for up to three days at a time for bigger projects:
- The Alternative Realities room – for motion capture, green screen, virtual, and augmented reality work;
- Sounds & Music room – set up for audio recording and digital music creation; and
- The Animation Farm – contains equipment to help create analog animation and a render farm for faster processing of digital media.
In addition, there is a conference table with room for up to 8 people at a time that can be reserved for meetings.
The CS will also has equipment available for check out including:
- Professional Digital Video Cameras
- Professional Digital Single Lens Reflex Cameras (DSLRs) with multiple lens options
- 360 degree video cameras
- Virtual Reality headsets

For more information about the CS or to reserve a space please see the lab aides in Avery 101 during Virtual Tutoring hours.
The Digital Foundations Lab
The Digital Foundations Lab is located in Thompson 1 and is equipped with 30 PC computers. This space is optimized for the creation of media that demands more computing power. It is ideal for animation, video post-production, and game development.
