The New Media Center supports the technology used in the teaching, research, and service activities of academic units within the College of Mass Communication and Media Arts.

The New Media Center in the College is one of four campus Computer Learning Centers that Information Technology manages.  These four centers are open to students, faculty, and staff with valid SIU Carbondale identification. 

MCMA students largely use the New Media Center lab in the College, in room 0009, in the basement of the Communications Building. The laboratory is comprised of three classrooms and an open access area available to all SIU Carbondale students, staff, and faculty.  The facility is available up to 24 hours a day and staffed more than 100 hours a week to provide practical assistance and technical support.

Journalism Computer Lab

The School of Journalism utilizes four, 20-station computer labs for use by students who are taking journalism courses, although other units within College also make use of these labs. Each of the computers feature high-speed Internet capability.
