Centre for Digital Media

Exterior of CDM 685 Building

The Centre for Digital Media is located on Great Northern Way Campus, and houses the 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, faculty offices, editing facility and an 8,000 square foot multi-purpose facility called the Hangar. 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.

Video Production Facilities

CDM 577 Hangar

Video production and effects are important aspects of the Master of Digital Media Program. The Centre for Digital Media supplies students with audio and video tools to help students succeed. For live action productions, students have access to a large green screen in the Hangar as well as 2D, 3D and DSLR cameras with industry standard software from Autodesk, Adobe and others. We also have a dedicated audio edit/recording room with plenty of audio software to see students through to the end of their projects.
