A basic review of one of the prior applications is required prior to you gaining proficiency and the ability to schedule the space. All scheduling for the 5.1 space is done at the Electronic Media desk, LIB1501. Please check with a staff regarding orientation, proficiency and scheduling.

Policy Violations

Any violations of studio policies will result in the temporary loss of studio access until you meet with Electronic Media staff and your faculty. Serious violations could result in permanent loss of your access to the Audio Studios; egregious violations such as drug, alcohol and tobacco use in the studios or control rooms and/or damage or theft of equipment will result in immediate and permanent loss of studio access and possibly permanent loss of access to Media Loan services.

Evaluation Week

Studios are not available for production use during evaluation week. Media Loan only checks out keys for evaluation purposes.

Summer Use

During the Summer, access is limited unless there is a specific class using the studios. Scheduling and reservation procedures may be slightly different than during the academic year.
