Last year, the UW Communication department unveiled its new, state-of-the-art recording studio for currently-enrolled students.  The recording suite in CMU 222C is “equipped to make your audio or video projects a success.” The space includes recording and editing equipment for taking students’ podcast or video production skills to the next level. The technology team has also installed a separate bring-your-own-equipment isolated audio booth. This small, ventilated room—completely lined in sound-deadening foam—allows students to get a clean, voiceover-quality sound from any recording equipment.  This room is open for drop-in access.

To receive training to access this space, students should email or check our Professional Development Workshops page for more information.
