Buried beneath the offices of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures in Jastak-Burgess Hall just a few feet away from the newly renovated little Bob Carpenter Sports Building lies UD's only Media Center dedicated to enhancing foreign language instruction at UD. Virtually undiscovered by most, this technological gem of the Newark campus offers those few who manage to make its discovery, the finest in foreign language tutoring, document production, laser printing (in black and white and color), access to the world of foreign language film on DVD, and scanning services.
Visitors to the Media Center discover a warm and typically quiet environment where imersion in silent study is only natural, where foreign language workstations are always available, and yet where discourse is encouraged, and help with foreign language issues both technological and linguistic abounds. Although finding us may be a challenge, it is a challenge well worth the effort.

Coffee Comes to the Media Center
The Foreign Language Media Center now offers all visitors coffee, tea, and hot chocolate at a cost of only fifty cents per ten ounce cup. Supporting the new coffee making equipment are packets of sugar, Sweet and Low, liquid creamer, twelve ounce coffee cups, coffee cup lids, and stirring straws. Since food is also permitted, a light breakfast supplemented by Media Center coffee is now a real possibility while working on computer-based projects with one of the Media Center's many high-end desktop computers or on your own personal laptop. Check it out in the basement of Jastak-Burgess Hall!
