TIMARA Studio Complex Location and Directions

We are located in the basement of Bibbins Hall, 77 W. College St.  From the North entrance to Bibbins Hall, facing Tappan Square, enter and take a right. 

Walk towards the end of the hallway, and take the staircase on your left to head to the basement. Doors to the TIMARA studios are typically locked but all Oberlin faculty, staff, and students have swipe access.

For all other visitors, there is a phone at the main entrance; you can dial 5-5515 from the phone during business hours and someone will typically be able to let you in.  (This number is posted right by the phone at the main entrance as well.) 

For a handicap accessible entrance, use the ramp at the East entrance of Bibbins, take the elevator to the basement, turn left as you exit the elevator and follow signs for TIMARA.  There is no phone at this entrance; if you do not have swipe access to the studios, please arrange your meeting time in advance so that someone will be available to let you in.
