In August, the College of Communication’s state-of-the-art Belo Center for New Media opened its doors after two and a half years of construction. The five-story, $54 million, 120,000-square-foot building at the corner of Guadalupe and Dean Keeton is equipped to help UT journalism, advertising, and public relations students become media pros in the digital age. Here are a few of its key features.
• Student activity center, home to Communication Council and other student organizations.
• 300-seat auditorium for lectures and events.
• Hospitality space for guest speakers.
• Multimedia newsroom that serves as both an interactive classroom and home base for the School of Journalism’s news site, Reporting Texas.
• Agency-grade creative suite to encourage collaboration between advertising students, featuring a computer projection system, flexible furniture, and a special wall to physically hang work for critique.
• 75-seat presentation space with cinemagrade audio and visuals.
• Two-story, 20,000-square-foot space for KUT, which includes a 72-seat performance studio, high-tech recording studios, and the station’s very first green room.
• Outdoor stage and street-level plaza.
