A Boutique Podcast Studio for Campus

Every voice has a story and every good story needs a voice.

Step into UC San Diego's boutique podcast studio experience– a dedicated space for budding storytellers to explore their voice in the medium of podcasting. Located on the fourth floor of the Design and Innovation Building in Room 411, STUDIO 411 is furnished with high quality audio recording equipment in a sound dampened room. Enjoy clean audio the way you want without the hassle and cost of building your own studio, all from campus. 

STUDIO 411 is free-to-use space that was designed for our campus community- students, faculty and staff- to reserve and record content. Time slots are offered 1.25 hour increments so if you want to step into the world of podcasting, just contact us to book your slot. Be sure to review our What to Expect page before coming to record. It's that easy. Our studio can accommodate up to 4 mic'd guests at a time as well as remote guests. In-room green screen and television available. 

This is where your stories can come to life. Innovate and be heard. To try it out, contact us below, and we'll set up a time.
