Getting started with the Recording Studio: CMS Recording Room Tutorial
The West Wing computer stations are dedicated for use by CSUN students only. Reservations must be made by a student with a @my.csun.edu email address.
You may be asked to present a valid CSUN ID to use the West Wing computer stations - bring it with you!
Computer stations can only accommodate one (1) CSUN student. The recording room may accommodate up to four (4) CSUN students.
Students are allowed to reserve up to a maximum of 3 hours per day, 12 hours per week, up to two weeks in advance.
If a student does not show up within 10 minutes of the start of the reservation, the first hour of the reservation is forfeited. Any CSUN student can use it for the remainder of the hour. If a student does not show up within 60 minutes of the start of the reservation, all of the remaining reserved time slots are forfeited.
Do you need more time on the computers? We may be able to extend your reservation when we are not busy. Just ask!
