Access and Usage
The Digital Media Lab is located on the first floor of the Stockwell Administration Building in Room 117. It is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. A small but highly experienced staff is available to answer questions and provide assistance whenever possible, but the lab is primarily intended for self-directed, hands-on use.
The lab is open-access in nature, and not designed to be reserved for use in classroom instruction. Members of the USC Upstate community have priority access to the facility, but it is available for use by others on a limited basis. Workstations are available on a first-come-first-serve basis, but can be reserved for two-hour sessions by calling 864-503-5559 or e-mailing the Digital Media Lab.
