Props and Costume Cages

Student Engagement houses a well stocked costume closet and props cages open for student and student group use free of charge. They are are both overseen by the Black Box Theatre Manager. These resources are intended to accommodate the need for student groups to have access to low-cost costuming and props options for programs, events and productions. These resources serve as a "lending library" of theatrical costumes, props, blocks and small set pieces that are to be shared and recycled among the community on an ongoing basis. Any recognized undergraduate student group is eligible to use these items; a reservation in the Black Box Theatre is not required.

Access to use items from both the props and costume cages is by appointment only during designated hours. If the offered times do not work please email Emily Delman at to set up a different time.
