Hours of Operation (MDRL)

Adobe Creative Campus provides Auburn students access to the full Adobe Creative Cloud suite of design and multimedia applications. Resources here empower students and faculty to use Adobe Creative Cloud to enhance classroom assignments, present research, and design and publish in print and online.

The Adobe Creative Cloud area of the MDRL / Innovation & Research Commons will be an open-access learning space dedicated to providing students with digital creation skills and technology. This area will promote the digital literacy of our students to encourage their success both in their coursework and in their careers.
