Opened in November 2001, Ohlone College's new Hyman Hall Building gives students in our Multimedia program access to classrooms and labs comparable to those found in industry and at private art schools.

  • Each student always has his/her own workstation.
  • Open lab is available for student use 14 hours a day Monday through Friday and 8 hours on Saturday.
  • Knowledgeable lab staff is available during all open lab hours. Many instructors hold office hours in the open lab.
