The design studio is only open during UB academic terms when the University is open; there is no provision for work outside of these hours. The studio follows the University schedule for weather-related closings.

The digital design studio includes 40 state-of-the-art Macintosh computers spread across several working areas and updated regularly with programs that include the full Adobe Creative Suite Designer Edition, Adobe After Effects, Apple Logic, and Apple Final Cut Studio. All of the workstations include CD/DVD-R burners and connections for digital cameras, camcorders and other equipment. Most are equipped with high-end photo-quality scanners.
Software resources include more than 2,000 type fonts (and software to help manage, preview and choose them), an image database of more than 100,000 royalty-free images, all of which are searchable and retrievable via a single-source database, a full sound effects library, royalty-free music library, and royalty-free HD video stock footage library.
Output options include high-resolution black-and-white laser printers, a color laser printer (up to tabloid-extra size) and a 36-inch, 12-color Postscript color poster printer.
The digital design studio is staffed with graduate assistants whose job it is to troubleshoot technical problems and answer students’ questions.
