Music Practice Rooms

LU Arts has a number of music practice spaces available for Music VIP members to use free of charge. This is for Loughborough University students and staff only.

Martin Hall

Rooms in the Martin Hall Building are equipped with pianos and are available for practice on orchestral/acoustic instruments. They operate on a first come, first serve basis between 7am and 10pm (when gates are locked, so please leave in good time); although some will be reserved at specific times for tuition or rehearsals. Rooms 0.18 and 0.22 have grand pianos, the rest have uprights. These rooms have step-free access.

Cope Auditorium

We also have a practice space behind Cope Auditorium. This is suitable for group practice and amplified instruments. There is no PA or drum kit provided, although there is an upright piano. The room is accessible for Music VIP members through the doors to the left of the auditorium as you look at it from Epinal Way. If you require step-free access, please contact us. A timetable showing the room’s availability is put on the noticeboard in the corridor outside the room at the beginning of each week. This also shows when Cope Auditorium is in use: the practice room is not available during those times. Available slots can be reserved by marking them on this timetable, or you can turn up in an unreserved slot.
