Visitor Services will be changing
At The Edge we are evolving our services to provide a proactive welcome experience for all our visitors. Our Box Office team are moving out from behind the desk and into the foyer, welcoming you from our new Visitor Services Station. Our team will be happy to help with anything you might have enquired about at our Box Office previously.
Edge Studios Membership
For the 2019-20 academic year, The Edge is combining its room-use into one membership. We know that lots of our regular users enjoy a mixture of art forms and we’re here to encourage you to be adventurous, develop your creativity in different ways or try something new. The Edge will no longer be selling Music Practice Cards but instead Edge Studios Memberships which will be available to purchase online. Once a membership has been bought, students and staff will be able to use our *new* online booking system to book the dance or art studio for an hour per day, in addition to one hour in any of the music practice rooms.
Online Booking System
We’re taking room booking online with the opportunity to book rooms at your own convenience, without the hassle of coming in, ringing ahead or exchanging lengthy email trails. Once you have purchased the Edge Studios Membership you can register with our online booking portal, allowing you to log in and reserve a music room, dance studio or art studio. After booking, you will then automatically receive a confirmation email to your university email account with a summary of your booking. In the system, you can also check a summary of your practice times so you don’t have to record or remember them. Room bookings open on week 1 of term (Monday 30 September).
There are many varying sized lockers available at The Edge for the storage of instruments or Dance gear. All Instrument lockers located in the Ensemble Room and Amp Room are now fitted with combination locks, allowing for a much smoother loan process and eliminating the possibility of losing a key. Lockers will now also be free to hire with no deposit needed, however, there will be a fine if locks are removed or combinations changed. If you would like to hire a locker please follow the instructions here
Lockers on Level 3 will still have keys, if you require one of these a member of The Edge team will make arrangements for you to collect the key at your earliest convenience.
