Using the Studio

Can more than one person use the room at a time?

  • Yes, small groups of up to four students are welcome to work together on video recording projects.
  • Because the room is small, we ask that you please do not bring extra furniture and chairs into the space. 

I won’t need the podium for my presentation. Can I move it out of the way?

  • Yes. Gently move the cable bundle out of the way, push the podium, and it will roll off to the side and out of your way. 
  • If you do move the podium during your recording session, please move it back and center it over the red tape “X” on the floor before you leave.

Can I use this room as a study space?

  • No. This is a video recording studio, not for use as a group study room. Patrons not using this space for video recording projects will be asked to leave.
