FAQ

Q. Is there an age limit?

A. Children under 8 must be accompanied by a parent. For the initial orientation children under 11 should be accompanied by a parent. 

 

Q. Can I do anything in the Recording Studio?

A. The Recording Studio should be used for audio/video recording, editing, streaming, playing instruments, or the like. If you are just looking to hang out, watch/listen to videos/music, or work on other things not related to the Recording Studio, we have Study Rooms and public computers available for your use. 

 

Q. Can I bring my own instrument?

A. Absolutely! Feel free to bring your own instruments or microphones to use in the studio.

 

Q. Can I bring my friends?

A. Someone who has gone through orientation can bring one other person with them. If you require more people for a project you can ask Colin or staff at the Information Desk. 

 

Q. The Recording Studio had junk everywhere and equipment left on...what's up with that?

A. The user before you didn't clean up before they left, which makes things more difficult for everyone. Please let us know if you find the Recording Studio is not clean when you use it, and please clean up any items you take out for the next person. Thanks!
