New Digital Design Studio (DDS) Space and Service Hours

Posted: Tue, Jan 18th 2022

The Digital Design Studio (DDS) is an educational space for entry into digital design, focused on audio production, video production, and visual design for printed materials or digital publication. We support student projects for courses and research, as well as extracurricular work by students, faculty, and staff. The DDS is managed by the Digital Scholarship department of Tisch Library.

During DDS service hours, the studio space is staffed by student Studio Assistants to guide you through access to our services, troubleshoot software, offer design feedback, and help you get your questions answered.

Note that you may reach the DDS remotely or outside DDS service hours via email at, through the library chat (you can ask to be assigned to the Tisch Library Digital Design Studio), or by phone at (617) 627-5953.
