The Digital Media Lab (DML) is a consortium between the Departments of Art Practice, Film & Media, Music, and Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies (TDPS). It proudly functions as a model of interdepartmental initiatives to support curricular development and digital media on campus. Art Practice facilities include dedicated digital photography, video editing, sound, green screen, and mixed-use performance spaces. Access to these spaces is reserved to students enrolled in Media Production classes who pay a lab fee of $60.00 per semester for expendables, and to graduate students in Art Practice.

An equipment check-out office is adjacent, with a range of digital cameras, portable lighting, tripods. Dillon Thomas is the studio technician.

Kroeber Hall Kr 285 has been used primarily for video and photo shoots, with ceiling-mounted projection, blackout blinds, a green screen, and LED studio lighting.
