     How much does it cost?

     Can students use the studio?

As the students may only use the Multimedia Studio for academic purposes under faculty direction, in the course of their classes or their employment as Teaching Fellows or Research Assistants. For all other purposes, students are encouraged to use the Cabot Library Media Studios.

     When can I record my media?

The Multimedia Studio is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. Reservations should be made at least 48 hours in advance through EMS. Requests for usage outside of these standard business hours or with under 48 hours’ notice will be supported to the greatest extent possible to facilitate faculty participation in radio, television, or other broadcast opportunities that arise outside of standard business hours or on short notice. For these requests, please email LXT Multimedia Producer Nicole Egidio at

     Will there be pre and/or post-production available for my project?

Yes, post-production services are available and may include such services as story-boarding a project, adding intros/outros to a podcast or video, or doing post-production edits for audio and light quality. Services available for a particular project will range in scope depending on the nature and audience of the project. Priority for these services will be given to academic and scholarly course content, as well as non-academic content designed for high-impact consumption by a large audience. The LXT Multimedia Producer, Nicole Egidio and the Assistant Dean for LXT, Leah Plunkett, looks forward to consulting with you on the services available for your particular project.
