Practice Room Access

The Mundelein Center for the Fine and Performing Arts is equipped with music studios on the first floor and practice rooms on the tenth floor. There are also specialized practice rooms for percussion, organ, group piano, and small ensembles.  Practice room usage is restricted to currently-enrolled students. Special permission access may be given to some alumni if they have the support of a faculty member.



First floor music studios are only available to declared music majors and those enrolled in applied piano and percussion lessons. These rooms are accessible via a designated proximity (prox) card. To request a prox card, please complete and submit this request form. Prox cards must be returned at the end of each semester or a $40.00 replacement fee will be charged to the student.

Tenth floor practice rooms are available to declared music major and minors, and anyone enrolled in a music class. These rooms are accessible via a University ID. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to de-densify, non-music students will not be permitted to purchase access to the tenth floor practice rooms, as they have in the past.

These spaces are open during regular building hours but not during holidays, academic breaks or between semesters. Availability of music studios and practice rooms is not guaranteed. These spaces may be reserved by the Department of Fine and Performing Arts for specific purposes and will be unavailable for general use during those time frames.


General Usage

Music studios and practice rooms are to be used for musical instrument and voice practice only.

Students may not have guests in the room with them unless prior permission from a faculty or staff member has been obtained. Food and drink are prohibited in all music studios and practice rooms. Students are expected to use the provided disinfectant wipes to clean the space before they leave the room. Violations of these regulations may result in a suspension or loss of practice room use privileges.

Usage of Specialized Practice Rooms and Studios

Permission may be granted by a faculty or staff member for usage of a specialized practice room or music studio. These rooms are often reserved for classes or lessons but may be open for reservation or made generally available during unused periods.
