Rehearsal studios and practice spaces

How to book

To book any of our rehearsal studios and practice rooms, you firstly need to become a member. Membership is free for students. Once you are a member you can sign up for any of our groups and activities and get access to our room booking system.

If you need to borrow any equipment during your booking, such as a guitar, drumsticks, microphones etc please email at least 24 hours before your room booking to arrange this.

Please note that at present we are unable to loan equipment and instruments for use outside the Centre for Music.

Special arrangements are in place for players in UWE Orchestra who need access to instruments. Email for more information.

Requested bookings at weekends are limited but we will do our best to help you. Come and see us at the Centre for Music and we will try and arrange something.
