D+EA Facilities

In addition to a world-class library and outstanding computing facilities throughout the university, the Department of Design + Environmental Analysis has a series of more specialized instructional and research facilities students regularly use.

It facilitates collaboration and exploration while developing smart solutions to conceptual and real world situations. dLib creates a learning hub for DEA students and professors of all disciplines, and provides a way to foster relationships with vendors and alumni. Monthly vendor reps come to display and provide samples to the latest materials and products on the market.

Design Studios and Galleries

D+EA has a gallery space within MVR Hall. This space features rotating exhibitions of both student and faculty work. The glass facade allows work to be displayed into the main corridor, showcasing the work to students, faculty, and visitors. The moveable walls and track ceiling grid provide molecularity for different gallery configurations.
