Media Studios



The two media studios are designed to provide high-quality audio and video recordings with only minimal training. Both Media Studio A (top) and Media Studio B (bottom) have a grey and green screen. 

Use: Open to the Harvard community for 2 hour bookings during supported times. Please note that a training orientation is required prior to your first use of the studios. Trainings are offered Mondays - Fridays between 9am-5pm by appointment. For trainings, please email with a few times you are available for a 30 minute training. 


Booking process: email at least one week in advance with the following information:

  1. Which studio you would like (Studio A has the green screen; Studio B is better suited to larger groups)

  2. A short description of your project

  3. Preferred dates and times for use

  4. Setup requests and special technological needs



Media Student Consultants can assist from 1-10pm Sunday-Thursday; 1-5pm Friday & Saturday
