Students wishing to book the JU Recording Studio need to be approved by Dr. Mark Snyder. Upon training and approval, Dr. Snyder will forward their names to Music Division Office Manager Debbie Hyatt, Campus Security and University Scheduler/Conference Coordinator Debbie Guy.

After students are qualified to book the studio, the process is as follows:
Email Dr. Snyder 7 days in advance of booking. This insures that no maintenance will be occurring and that studio equipment will not be used in a location other than the studio at that time. Your email should clearly state the dates in the subject field, dates and times in the body of the email along with project, participants and equipment that will be used. Here is a PDF example of what your email should include.

Once Approved by Dr. Snyder, Book the space on 25 Live which can be found at in the Applications tab under Schedule Calendar. Technically, you’re booking the blackbox theater in 25live. It’s under fine*19.
Debbie Guy will approve the request if another event has not been booked in the blackbox theater at that time. This request needs to be made 72 business hours before the booking.

While it is possible for students to use the control room when the Black Box Theater is in use, it is discouraged because of possible disruptions for those using the Black Box Theater.

Failure to follow this procedure or good studio practices will result in the loss of studio privileges for the student. Dr. Snyder can revoke studio privileges at any time and for any reason.
