About the Studio

The new TVO studio, operated in Southam Hall by Carleton’s Teaching and Learning Services, will also become a valuable resource for Carleton and media outlets seeking expert commentary. Carleton is setting up the studio to connect to networks in Ottawa and beyond, which will allow journalists to interview Carleton experts remotely. More information will be provided in coming weeks.
