Computer & Media Labs

Computer and media labs are intended for use by classes and by any Brandeis community member needing a public computer. In addition to the standard productivity packages, we install specialized software, which varies from room to room and semester to semester.

The Getz Multimedia Lab provides members of the community with access to workstations for digital video production, digital audio production, graphic design, and computer animation. We have 25 Mac computers running professional media software including Final Cut Pro, Adobe Creative Suite, and Logic Pro.

To request new software (or new versions of software), contact clusters@brandeis.edu. Please note that you must request software for each semester it is required; software is not automatically installed from year to year.
