GENERAL ACCESS INFORMATION
AMDA’s New York campus is now open to cleared alumni for individual rehearsal use and library access. To utilize alumni benefits on campus, alumni must present a valid Alumni ID upon entry.
All Alumni IDs issued prior to March 2020 have been deactivated and new IDs can only be requested once alumni are cleared for campus access. To begin the clearance process for campus access, alumni should submit a Campus Access Form and wait for further instruction.
RESERVING A REHEARSAL OR VOICE STUDIO
Rehearsal and Voice Studios are designed to offer support, when available, for audition preparations or independent practice/rehearsal. They are not designed for group projects or outside productions. Use of AMDA Rehearsal and Voice Studios is a privilege that extends only to AMDA alumni. NON-AMDA affiliated participants cannot be approved for campus access.
Only alumni who have received a confirmation of clearance are eligible for campus access. Cleared alumni should reserve Rehearsal and Voice Studios through the AMDA Student Portal before visiting campus. Studios are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority is always given to current students and faculty.
Alumni should make every effort to reserve Rehearsal and Voice Studios prior to coming to campus through the Student Portal. Studio reservations can only be made up to 1 day prior to your visit and are limited to 2 hours total per day - 1 hour in a Rehearsal Studio + 1 hour in a Voice Studio. You will not be able to book a room if the duration is longer than 1 hour.
