Scheduling

Directions and Parking

  • Most (but not all) of our Playtest studies are held at our Studio D or Building 92 Studios User Research facilities in Redmond, WA. A map to this location can be found here. Your best bet is to contact your Study Coordinator to make sure this is the right location. You can also reach us via email at: playtest@microsoft.com.

  • Depending on the type of study you'll be attending, the scheduler will ask you to arrive 15-30 minutes before the scheduled study start time. This gives you a little extra time to find the building, park and get signed in at the front desk.

  • Park in one of the Visitor spaces or the reserved Microsoft User Research spaces in the parking lot between Building 92 and Studio D. For a map, click here. As an alternative, you can park in the parking garage that services Studio D and the surrounding buildings (follow the signs for the parking garage). Please be sure register your vehicle license plate with the receptionist after parking your car.

  • Yes, we have disabled parking at all buildings where Playtest studies are held. Please inquire with your Study Coordinator for information about the specific locations of these parking facilities.
