You must have a booking to use our studio.

Please bring your own storage media for the studio, whether that be your own cloud storage such as Google Drive or a USB Stick. For the podcast desk, you MUST bring your own Micro SD Card.

As with the rest of Auaha, the studio is a self-directed learning space, so please remember to factor in your own learning time to your studio booking.

There are no costs associated with using the studio. However if you book and do not show within 15 minutes of your booked time, you forfeit your session.

You can fill out the Studio booking form to let us know your preferred day.
