Proper Etiquette at Strathmore

•   Please keep your voices down in the Education Center hallways so as not to disturb classes, performances, and special events within the classrooms.

•   It is necessary to keep the hallways on the 3rd and 4th floors clear and easy to pass through especially around the elevators so that guests, faculty, students, and staff of other Strathmore partners may safely walk by.

•   Shoes and proper cover ups must be worn at all times outside of the studios. Absolutely no bare feet outside of the Education Center lobby.

•   There is no parking or dropping off in the Strathmore Mansion parking lot.  Please use the meters on Tuckerman Lane and the Metro Garage to park.  Please use the circle drive on Tuckerman Lane to drop off.
