General covid measures at UBC Studios

Most restrictions in regards to physical distancing have been removed, however the UBC Studio entrance doors are now locked 24/7– access is granted by pressing the doorbell that is available right outside the door. Non-medical masks are not required to be worn at this current time.

  • Increased sanitization of all studio spaces, work stations, and equipment after every session


Covid measures for DIY Studios


We know how hard it can be to transition from regular in-class teaching to online learning and thus we’ve reopened and improved on our DIY studios to better prepare the increased use of our studios.
Meetings with our team are now online only – monthly DIY Drop in sessions have also been changed to an online format. Please expect a 5-10 minute wait due to increased demand. Any questions or meeting requests can be emailed to

Our Lightboard Studios has a few upgrades including:

  • New Livestream capabilities – stream Lightboard and DIY Recording sessions to any online platform using RTMP streaming or Zoom via Virtual Webcam.

We are also doing some research and development on mobile alternatives for UBC faculty.

Current booking procedures remain the same. However due to increased security measures, both our building and studio doors are now locked 24/7. For any studio bookings please meet our media specialist outside at the following location. (parking lot outside our studio at the intersection of West Mall and Agronomy.)
