The Robert Webster Building is home to the School of the Arts and Media (SAM) and its administrative and academic staff. The building includes modern facilities to facilitate and extend student experience of cross art and media practices involving all disciplines under the SAM umbrella, while being able to strengthen skills and knowledge in their specific area of study.

There are two large Dance/Drama Studios with vinyl sprung floors. These are teaching spaces used by the School and have been used by performance companies and other groups for rehearsals and workshops (currently undergoing upgrades). See below for the dimensions and equipment in each space.

There are 4 film viewing rooms, 3 Video/Sound editing rooms, a stop-motion animation studio, multi-media labs and a number of computer labs. Software used and taught in the School includes Final Cut Pro, Media 100, I Movie, Pro Tools and Life Forms. Equipment available to students for their coursework includes video cameras, basic lighting kits, DAT recorders and CD and DVD burners.
