Any member of the Vassar community can gain 24/7 swipe access to Baldeck Darkroom by following the steps below:

1. Email Phocus or the Darkroom Manager to request darkroom access. You must attend a darkroom orientation (about 15 minutes, if you have used a darkroom previously, or about an hour and a half, if you have not) before getting full access to the darkroom.

2. After the orientation, we will email you a brief quiz and contract (also below), which you must complete and send back. (Please use only your own knowledge for this, do not consult outside sources).

3. During or after the orientation, pay the darkroom fee (cash or Venmo) to the Darkroom Manager or our faculty advisor, Monica Church (mochurch@vassar.edu).
