OPEN STUDIO ACCESS

Open Studio Access (OSA) is non-instructional, monitored work time offered in each Department shop. OSA is available to CIADC Students, Student Members, and Access Members during scheduled 3-hour work blocks throughout the week.

OSA is offered as a single, 3-hour drop-in, or purchased in bulk for a discount. Please contact us for current rates and Department OSA schedules.

A STUC is not required for current Student or Student Members to use OSA in the Department of their class.
