Practice Rooms

  • Access to the practice rooms is given to Music Majors, Minors, and students enrolled in UMBC Music lessons and ensembles classes.
  • New for Spring 2023: Students who are not in one of those categories can have access to Practice Room 158. Only students outside the department can reserve times in this room, however if it is not signed out or the room is empty 15 minutes after the signed out slot, this room can be used by anyone.

  • If you lose your ID card and get a replacement, you will need to email jkeaton1@umbc.edu to have your access reprogrammed
  • Hand sanitizers will be located on the walls of every practice room.
  • Building access for practice rooms is 7am-11pm every day of the week¬†excluding holidays where the University is closed (Labor Day, Thanksgiving, etc.)
  • Wear a mask whenever possible if your instrument allows it.
  • Please leave a 15 minute block between sign ups to allow for air to circulate. You can sign up for consecutive times so long as you allow for 15 minutes for air to circulate at the end of your time.
  • Calendars will be posted on the door of each practice room that can be used to reserve weekly recurring practice times. Please check if a practice room is reserved before using it.
  • If a student hasn’t shown up 15 minutes into a reserved time, you can consider that time forfeited and use the room.
