Instant Theater

Behind the grand staircase on Alkek's main floor, a 90 inch, touch-screen monitor is available for various training sessions. Trainings include Library and IT workshops, as well as other campus services. We also host special events in this space, like our popular dog therapy sessions during final exams. Faculty, Staff and Students can reserve the Instant Theater space using this online form: Instant Theater Reservation Request
