    These music rooms, though primarily teaching spaces, can be booked by students for larger ensemble practices, or for use of the specialized instruments/ equipment kept in them. Bookings are restricted to 2 hours per day, per student and for Bachelor of Music students only. 

    To book these rooms, students must email, call or visit the School of the Arts and Media (SAM) Office, with your student card and provide the information below: 

    1. Student ID and Your Name 
    2. Room, Time and Date 
    3. Course/ Ensemble you are practising for 
    4. Names of other students in the room with you 
    5. What instruments will be used inside the room 

    Email or call (02) 9385 4856

    If you wish to book a larger room after hours, this must be negotiated with SAM office staff. You must make your request before midday Wednesday for the following Friday to Friday period. (For example, if you were booking for week 4, you would need to make your request by midday Wednesday week 3). 

    We will do what we can to accommodate you, but please do not take after hours bookings for granted as we will not book out rooms after hours if instruments/ equipment within are damaged or vandalized. 

    For after-hour access, please email the school office the information above. Once permission is granted you will receive a confirmation email. The school office will then notify security to grant you access to the large practice rooms. Please contact security at 02 9385 6000 to be let into the rooms.
