Work at the Lab


The Hadwiger Multimedia Laboratory, located in Coleman 1681 & 1691, is a technology resource for students, faculty, and staff in the Department of Communication Studies at Eastern Illinois University. The multimedia lab is named after Professor Emeritus Ken Hadwiger.

Multimedia Equipment

The lab checks out HD video and audio production equipment such as camcorders, DSLRs, microphones, digital audio recorders, tripods, projectors, lighting equipment, and more to eligible students.

Most of our cameras require a class 6 or higher SDHC or SDXC card. You will need to provide your own card.


We have MacBook Pro laptops featuring the Adobe CC suite for video, audio, photos, web design, publishing and more. Computers are for in-lab use only.


Students can print in the lab for $0.07/page black and white and $0.20/page color. Students must have their Panther Card loaded with Panther Cash to print.

The Hadwiger Lab also has a plotter for large projects like posters. This printer is available only to Communication Studies faculty and staff, and students working on approved class projects. See a lab assistant for details.
