Music Scholars Hall

What is the Community for Musical Scholars?

The Community for Musical Scholars is an exciting and supportive community that is designed for students who are admitted music majors. You will live with peers from around the world who are pursuing one or more of our many music degrees, such as composition, music education, music technology, and performance. The goal of the Community for Musical Scholars is to provide you with multiple levels of performance, academic, and personal support to further enhance the world-class education you’ll receive in the School of Music and Dance.

Why should I choose to live in the Community for Musical Scholars?

In addition to the benefits of living with colleagues who are pursuing similar degree paths, you will have access to on-site music tutors and academic advising. You will also have around-the-clock access to acoustically designed practice rooms, acoustic and digital pianos, as well as common community and group study spaces. It is equally important to note that your resident assistant will be a music major who can be a valuable resource, especially for students in their first and second years of study.

What amenities will the community feature?

  • six music practice rooms
  • multipurpose room with study space, classroom technology, and electric keyboards
  • lounge with upright piano
  • more access to faculty connections
