Short-Term Studios

< Back

There are two short-term studios that are open to current student use. A studio can be reserved for up to four weeks in advance and for a maximum of one week, the minimum being for one day. If the space is available after your week is over, it can be renewed for up to one more week. You will not be able to make multiple reservations at one time.

You must pay the $50 (pay to account DFVDL) deposit and fill out the Short-Term Studio Reservation form when making the reservation. Keys can only be picked up from the Equipment Cage Supervisor and must be returned on the specified return date by 12:00 pm (noon). Late fees and loss of access may result if the key is not returned on time. If the key is lost, you will be billed to rekey the lock and replace the key.

These rooms can be used for various purposes as long as the following guidelines are closely followed.

  • Any use of fog machines, water, dirt, or any other materials / devices that would cause damage to the equipment, space, or interrupt the operations of the Institute must be discussed with and approved by the Equipment Cage Supervisor.
  • All of your materials / equipment must be removed from the space and the room must be returned to the condition it was in upon entering. This may require repainting of the walls, cleaning, etc.
  • You are responsible for the space and any equipment, whether the equipment is personal or from the School of Film/Video. All equipment checked out from the Equipment Cage should be properly secured.
  • To schedule an event, an Event and Performance Checklist must be filled out. If there will be a reception (with or without alcohol), a Reception Scheduling Request must be filled out. These forms are also available from the mailroom.

Deposits will be held if any of the above guidelines are not followed. If damage is beyond the deposit, you will be held responsible for the full amount of repair.
