Schedule Your Recital or Event

Scheduling for Music & Dance Department students, faculty & guest artists only.

Please note: The Student Recital Scheduling procedure has changed. You will be notified well in advance of your approved recital by the scheduler, and will be able to pick a convenient date.  Students will no longer use the forms on this page for recital scheduling, but will soon be able to schedule events such as chamber rehearsals or meetings.

First, find an open time and venue using the following links, then reserve your space using the reservation forms listed beneath.
