Additionally, the department offers a computer lab with Macintosh computers equipped for digital photography, video editing, and DVD production; flatbed scanners for film and reflective media up to 8 ½" x 11"; and a 44" wide inkjet printer.

UCLA Margo Leavin Graduate Art Studios

All MFA students are offered the use of individual studio spaces in an off-campus studio building, temporarily located in West Los Angeles while the permanent facility undergoes major renovations. In addition to individual studio spaces, the building houses photography, sculpture, ceramics, and computer labs, as well as an open space for gallery, classroom, or lecture use. The UCLA Margo Leavin Graduate Art Studios, located in Culver City, is slated for completion in Fall 2019.
