The Learning Center – CJ 1.419

The Learning Center is funded and operated by the Department of Communication Studies and the Department of Journalism at Concordia University. The day-to-day operations are overseen by four graduate students in the Communication Studies department. Our phone number is (514) 848-2424 ext. 2544 for information or to pre-book any equipment.


The Learning Center has numerous resources that are available to students, faculty and staff, including a Dubbing Room for the duplication of multiple media formats (audio and video). We also have a complete selection of CD sound effects and eight OS X Apple computers with internet access. Our video archive is extensive and a great source for file stock. Just ask one of us for the video tape list, it keeps growing every week.

Schedule / Hours

Monday to Thursday we are open 8h45 – 16h45, Friday from 8h45 – 12h45. A security pass is required (for studio/production/equipment, or for any other use of departmental facilities) during the hours we are not open – see below for details.


As in all our production facilities, eating and drinking in the Learning Center is strictly prohibited.

  • Please only sign-out sound effect CDs when you have production time.
  • Please book Learning Center facilities (including studio keys) ahead of time to insure a space for you on the equipment.
  • If you do not arrive within 15 minutes, you forfeit your booking to anyone waiting. If you take course readings, please ensure that they are handed-in the way you received them (i.e. all pages are in the correct order and stapled back together when you are finished with the course, or supplemental readings).
  • For access to the building after-hours, please contact the appropriate Technical Instructor.
  • Please hand-in all your materials (keys, CDs, readings, etc.) no later than 16h30 (Monday – Thursday) or 12h30 (Friday) because Learning Center staff need at least 10 minutes to close.
