Technology Support

MCC Media Lab

The MCC Media Lab, located at 239 Greene Street on the 7th floor, is a learning space and incubator for digital critical making. The Media Lab has a small computer room as well as media equipment available to students in registered courses. If you require Media Lab assistance, please email the Media Lab Team.

Additional campus technology centers are available to all NYU students, faculty, and staff.

Research Tools

The NYU subject librarian for media studies is Katherine Boss. MCC students and faculty should feel free to contact her for research assistance. The Media and Communication page on the Bobst website contains links to reference works, databases, directories, and other research guides. The MCC PDF Archive hosts numerous scholarly articles. The Advertising Archive is a department-built, Media Lab-maintained, collection of clips and images.

Computer Support

The Steinhardt IT team provides MCC with technology support. They can be reached at Steinhardt.it@nyu.edu. Personal computers are not supported.

NYU Campus Media

Faculty who need A/V equipment in classrooms should make requests through NYU Campus Media. Please contact Darrell Carter who can assist with making these requests. If you wish to know what A/V a particular classroom or conference room offers, you can search Campus Media's classroom database.

NYU Wireless 

Access to NYURoam, the campus wireless network, requires a NYU NetID and password authentication. The nyuguest wireless network is available for visitors. If you have a guest who will need to connect to the Internet via wireless, you can request an nyuguest username and password from MCC reception.

Website or Digital Project Support

NYU's Digital Studio staff can assist NYU students and faculty with file management and digital publication, including building personal Wordpress websites. Faculty may be interested in the Faculty Digital Archive, a visible repository of NYU scholarship, allowing digital works, —text, audio, video, data, and more —to be shared and securely stored.

NYU's Digital Scholarship Services team at Bobst offers consultations with NYU faculty and students about ways to use digital scholarship and digital humanities tools and methods in research and teaching. 

Teaching with Technology 

Faculty wanting to incorporate technology into their teaching should connect with Steinhardt IT's Academic Technology team. They will meet with faculty and review the many resources offered by Steinhardt and the University.

File Sharing and Storage

The easiest way to share files is via NYU Drive. Those seeking cloud-based storage for sensitive data should use NYU Box.

Videoconferencing

Videoconferencing is available for use by faculty and doctoral students at a number of locations around campus, including at 239 Greene Street (rooms 712 and 741). Additional video conferencing rooms on campus are managed by NYU IT.

Online Training with Lynda.com

The majority of the NYU community now has access to lynda.com, an online video training library with expert-led videos. NYU community members can use lynda.com to learn the latest techniques in business, digital media, design, photography, animation, development, and more.
