The Department of Music houses 32 practice rooms in the basement level of Hill Hall with a variety of configurations, resources, and instruments available for student use. Most of the rooms are equipped with an upright or electric piano, mirror, and music stand. Six rooms with grand pianos are available for use by piano majors only.

All students enrolled in private lessons or a department ensemble may use the practice rooms for free. 

For non-music students, access is approved upon request via our online Practice Room Access request form. Upon approval, you will need to pay the $70 fee in person (via credit card, check, or cash at Hill Hall 105 or 106) to have your One Card activated for access to Hill Hall. Please note there are NO REFUNDS for this fee.

All practice rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please wipe down all surfaces before and after use.

If you encounter issues with our pianos, please email Max Mitler at
