Sign Out a Rehearsal Studio

Access to Rehearsal Studios are based upon registration for selected classes. If you are not in one of the approved classes to use to the space, you will not be able to access the room. Consult the instructor in your Acting class to see if you are an approved user of these spaces. BEFORE using the space is it expected that you have read and understood the Room Use Policy Posted Below.




Faculty and current UMBC Theatre students may use studio spaces for their research/creative work according to the procedures and guidelines outlined in the General Room Use Policy below, in addition to the studio-specific policy posted in the space near the door. The Studios are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, as available to authorized students for course related rehearsals only.

Studios are signed out using these Google Calendar instructions (PDF, feel free to save). All authorized members of a class should receive swipe access to the room at the top of the semester. If, for any reason, you do not have swipe access to a Rehearsal Studio and you are in an approved class to use the space, please consult the Instructor of your class.

General Room Use Policy:

    • If there is an emergency (health or safety):
      • Call Campus Police at 410-455-5555
      • Email Gregg Schraven to inform him of the emergency.
    • Except for entering & exiting, the doors must be locked at all times. Bring your swipe card with you if you leave so that you can let yourself back into the room.
