Facilities

The School of Communication boasts an outstanding array of facilities for students, faculty, staff, and guests to research, work, perform, create, engage, and lead. From a state-of-the-art clinic serving children and adults with speech and hearing challenges to a renowned, professional-caliber performing arts complex, the school deftly anticipates and swiftly responds to the learning needs of our community.

Our facilities house and foster the work of the school’s five departments with dozens of teaching spaces, research labs, auditoriums, performance and practice facilities, production and design studios, film sets, digital media bays, administrative offices, and gathering spaces. The innovation, collaboration, and groundbreaking work in communication that these facilities cultivate are at the very heart of our mission to both the university and the world.
