SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER -- Slated to rise simultaneously with the housing project is a long-awaited, state-of-the-art Center for Media Arts, which will come with an adjacent 800-seat auditorium at the intersection of Holloway Avenue and Font Boulevard.

The four-story, 76,000 square-foot building will absorb the school’s Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts program, which currently operates inside of SFSU’s aging College of Liberal and Creative Arts Department building.

That department’s administrative offices, as well as interdisciplinary lecture and active learning classrooms, two full-height television studios, a television newsroom, a radio station and production spaces, will also find a home in the new center.
