The Creativity Studio will reopen on August 16, 2021, and we are currently accepting requests to reserve the space

The Creativity Studio can be configured for a wide variety of teaching, learning, and collaborative activities in many disciplines. NC State University students, faculty, and staff can request to reserve the Creativity Studio for the following uses: 

  • Class visits 
  • Special instruction and active learning session 
  • Workshops
  • Masters & PhD Defenses

One end of the Studio features two high-definition blended laser projectors and a curved screen ideal for immersive presentations. The other end features a single high-definition projector optimized for standard instructional uses. 

Moveable walls with dry-erase whiteboard surfaces can be placed throughout the space for active learning, group work, and prototyping activities. Furniture and technology can be configured upon request in support of a variety of uses, including simulations, workshops, presentations, and installations.

If you need a meeting room or other event space, students and faculty can reserve a group study or faculty room. There are also more spaces available through Campus Enterprises (RAVE) and the McKimmon Center.
