Studio Pass Information

What does it mean to have a studio pass?

A studio pass can be compared to a gym membership. Studio pass holders have access to all of Wheelhouse Studios' equipment and can use each of the three studio spaces during open studio hours. When using your pass, please remember to always check in at the welcome desk upon arrival at our studios!

Users are invited to purchase a studio pass at the welcome desk at Wheelhouse Studios, located on the lower level of Memorial Union.

Please note: Passes do not include materials. All patrons are expected to purchase materials from the front desk. For safety reasons, there are no outside materials allowed in the space and all exceptions need to be approved by Wheelhouse leadership. Email us with questions!
