STUDIO REQUEST AND ALLOCATION PROCESS

Your studio space is allocated based on your nominated discipline and your studio request form.

Each space attracts a studio bond of $220 ($200 bond and $20 non-refundable administration fee). This bond must be paid online prior to your studio induction and in order to gain access to your allocated space. Print your receipt as evidence of your payment.

Your studio induction will take place in the first week of your commencing research period with the Studio Technical Supervisor. During this induction, you and your Studio Technical Supervisor will sign the Conditions Of Use and Request For Keys/Swipecard form.
