Student Multimedia Centers

The Student Multimedia Centers provide students with resources for their various class-related design and production needs. The Design Studio at Fort Steilacoom is located in the library on the fourth floor, and the Puyallup Multimedia Center is located in AAH132 in the Arts & Allied Health Building.

The centers are funded through student technology fees and are open to all Pierce College students. A student multimedia facilitator is available to answer questions and provide one-on-one and group training.
