Studio Reservation Guidelines

Our online reservation system can be accessed by anyone with a valid UW NetID. The optimal web browser for accessing and viewing the calendar is FireFox.

Policies for Studio Reservation

  • Reserve space online before using – even if done at last minute.
  • Include what you are working on with your name (FDC, Class Prep, Research, etc…). Include an email and phone number in the description. 
  • If you are Willing To Share (WTS) please indicate that next to your name. If you do not see WTS next to a reservation name – DO NOT ask someone to share. 
  • Faculty and Grad Student Changes/Deletions should be made as soon as possible to any existing reservations. If you have problems, contact for help.
  • Undergraduate students who need to change and/or delete reservations need to contact immediately to have these processed. Failing to do so will result in a warning. Multiple failures will result in suspension of studio privileges.  
  • Students and Student Groups can reserve NO MORE than a quarter in advance (and should be aware that bumping privileges are applicable).
  • Dance Majors may NOT reserve space for students/groups from outside the department without prior consent from the department. Doing so without consent may result in suspension of reservation privileges.
  • Reservations may be bumped out of a studio based on priority. Those doing the bumping should contact the bumpee directly and change the reservation accordingly.  If you need help finding a contact email or changing a reservation, please contact 
  • Keys for studios need to be returned promptly. Failure to return keys in a timely manner may result in suspension of reservation privileges. If you need keys for evening, weekend, and holiday reservations, see the advisor in Meany 258.
