In order to use these rooms, you need to attend a 30-minute orientation. Due to reduced staffing during the Spring and Summer terms, orientations will be by appointment, 10am-5pm. Please email to set up a time.

The Library will replace its room reservation system in the Spring/Summer 2018 terms. While the new system is configured, please do the following to reserve one of the Media Production Rooms: 

1) Check this calendar to see if the room/station is available when you'd like to request a reservation.
2) Email directly to request a reservation. In the email, please state which room and/or station you would like to reserve and the date and time you would like to reserve it for. 
3) Design Lab staff will confirm your reservation and add it to the calendar. 

Further changes to the reservation process will be noted on this page. Thank you for your patience as we improve our systems!
