Centre for Digital Media

Exterior of CDM 685 Building

Centre for Digital Media (CDM) is located on Great Northern Way Campus, and houses the Master of Digital Media program, as well as the Pre-Master of Digital Media program and Teen Master of Digital Media program. CDM is also home to industry studios, and hosts a variety of industry and professional development events. 

CDM resides in two buildings: CDM | 577, the original home of the MDM program (a renovated Caterpillar tractor factory) and CDM | 685, that opened next door. 

CDM | 685 houses the majority of the learning spaces and has 76 student apartments upstairs. It features student-centered design—MDM students have a unique opportunity to create and re-create their learning space as they move through the program—including studios, a student kitchen and social areas for both collaboration and relaxation.

CDM | 577 is the home of CDM’s interactive lab and editing facility. It also has a variety of industry studios, a research network and a café.

In addition, the building has bike facilities, an excellent workout space and hosts a bi-weekly boot camp.

The 2 classrooms are media enabled with full audio and video support wired in. Each classroom has four writeable walls and they can be combined into one large classroom to increase capacity for larger audiences.
