Franklin Hall

Franklin Hall is an early 20th Century building retrofitted for the Media Age.

The heart and soul of the Media School is the Media Student Commons, a lively hub that physically connects two-floor levels and three discrete building forms. Designed to be impressive and visually lively, this double-height atrium is capped with a large skylight to flood the interior with natural light. Large, flexible, comfortable furniture and integrative technology allow students to customize their environment and tap into the super-sized screen above them to present their own content or watch one of the many broadcasts streaming simultaneously.


An immersive experience.

As you enter the historic lobby and proceed into the stunning double height, sky-lit commons you are immediately immersed in the energy and activity of the Media School. Standing in the center of the commons, you can see a campus television studio, the university newspaper under production, and a live radio broadcast.
