The television studios are available 24/7 to students enrolled in specific TV production courses. Individual rehearsal and production time must be scheduled in the Production Office and cannot conflict with scheduled classes or with engineering maintenance time. Any work with cameras also requires a qualified TA or faculty member to be present at all times when cameras are running.
