(Darkroom facilities can only be accessed by graduate students, and students currently enrolled in analog photography classes)

There are 3 different areas that make up the darkroom facility: the processing area, the finishing area and the darkroom proper. In the processing area are all the tools students and faculty need for developing 35mm and medium format B&W film, from lightproof closets, to negative drying cabinets. Inside the darkroom, are 23 photographic enlargers, and two large developing stations that can accommodate any photographic developing size up to and including mural-size printing. The final area is the finishing area, which contains light tables and heat presses for dry mounting photographic work.
