Intersections Lab

Located on the third floor of the Goldfarb Centre for Fine Arts (328 GCFA), the Intersections Lab is a teaching facility with recent iMacs and a wide suite of media production software.

There are 21 computers available to students and one computer for the instructor at the podium connected to the projector.

Hours

The lab is open between 9am and 4pm on class days.

After hours access

Graduate students can coordinate with their departments to be given a door card and alarm code to facilitate use of the lab after hours.

A staff member from AMPD Computing will close the lab at 4pm. If you are a grad student in the lab and intend to stay after hours, we will ask you to use your door card as identification by activating the door card reader with it. This is to ensure the security of the equipment in the lab. It will be your responsibility to close the lab and set the alarm when you leave.
