AUDIO/VISUAL EQUIPMENT

Equipment is available for checkout at the Reception Desk. For more information, please see the Receptionist.

CLASSROOM ACCESS

All music majors will be issued a personal code to gain access to music classrooms and practice room suites. Prior to Week of Welcome, access codes will be pre-issued via email to students with valid UO e-mail addresses. To receive a code after WOW and the first week of fall term, please see the Director of Facilities, David Mason (room 121G).

EQUIPMENT/FURNITURE

SOMD equipment is not to be removed or borrowed from the building without prior permission from the Director of Facilities, Production Manager, or Recording Engineer (as appropriate). If equipment is missing from a room, please report it to the Director of Facilities immediately, room 121G (dsmason@uoregon.edu; 541-346-5679). It is extremely important that we are all aware of the impact on others if equipment is not where it is supposed to be. Nothing should be taken out of the building (including stands and chairs). If you have permission to move anything, please put it back when you are finished.

FEES (NON-COURSE RELATED)

In addition to course-related fees, the SOMD also charges fees for various services (e.g., audio recording, instrument rental, recitals). A complete list of these fees may be found here.

KEY AUTHORIZATION

Student keys and codes may be issued for practice, work-study, and special study projects. Forms for keys to SOMD rooms may be obtained at the Reception Desk.

Temporary checkout keys are available at the Reception Desk. In exchange for all borrowed keys, students are required to leave a piece of identification at the desk. Some rooms require authorization for checkout. Access to faculty offices require written permission in advance, sent to the Reception Desk.

LOCKERS

All music majors and minors, and non-music UO students who are enrolled in an ensemble or lessons for the current term are eligible to reserve a locker, sized appropriate to instrument, within the Music building. Locker sign-up begins during Week of Welcome and will take place in the Bailey Lounge. An $8 locker use fee will be charged per term to students’ UO account. Locks will be provided; non-SOMD locks are not allowed and will be removed. Lockers are not to be used for food storage. For additional information about SOMD locker use, please see the Locker Rental page.

Please make sure valuables (particularly instruments and computers) are insured. Most homeowner and renter insurance covers personal items away from home but double check with your insurance agent.

MAPS

A building map and touch screens are displayed near the Reception Desk and at various entrances to the building. Copies of building maps, as well as campus and parking maps, are also available from the Receptionist.

MUSIC STUDENT ID CARDS

Music Student ID cards are available during Week of Welcome from the Graduate and Undergraduate Offices. These cards, which are distributed to undergraduate and graduate students majoring in music, allow free or reduced admission to SOMD concerts and are required when reserving practice rooms. Students must validate their card each year by requesting a current sticker from the SOMD front desk.  To do so, students must present a copy of their current class schedule printed from DuckWeb with the "name on" (a print option within DuckWeb).

PHOTOCOPYING AND PRINTING

There are computers and a printer services in the Kammerer Computer Lab in Room 105 for music student use. Students may print in the lab by paying with Campus Cash from their UO ID card. The Campus Copy Center in the EMU (Erb Memorial Union) can print large orders and has self-service copiers available. The University Library and UO Bookstore have campus cash operated copiers. Other copy centers are located near campus on 13th Avenue.

PRACTICE ROOMS

Current music majors, minors and those currently registered for music performance classes [MUP] or a music ensemble may reserve up to ten hours per week in designated practice rooms located throughout the Music building. To reserve practice rooms, students must present a current SOMD ID card (if applicable) and a class schedule with your name printed on it (an option within DuckWeb). Reserved practice room hours apply for a full term. Students may sign-up to reserve practice room hours at the beginning of each term.

Students are not to use practice rooms for private teaching. It is illegal to give private lessons in the Music building if they are not part of the University curriculum or an established University program. Piano, harp, organ, string bass, and percussion students have special locked practice rooms and are issued keys. For instructions, see KEY AUTHORIZATION.

Non-majors who are registered for music lessons or a music ensemble without practice room reservations may use general practice rooms only when they are not needed by music majors and on a first-come, first-served basis. An access code for all practice rooms is required. Please visit the Director of Facilities David Mason (121G), to get a code. Equipment must not be removed from practice rooms. Students are asked to leave the practice room tidy upon exiting, including wiping up any condensation puddles that may have accumulated after brass instrument practice sessions. For more information, see EQUIPMENT/FURNITURE.

PROXIMITY ACCESS (PROX) CARDS

Music majors may request proximity "prox" access to be added to their UO ID card.  The prox card allows music majors to gain access to the Music building after the building has been locked. If you wish to have your prox card activated, please submit your student ID number and 5-digit prox code (located on the back of your UO ID card) to Director of Facilities, David Mason (room 121G).

RENTAL INSTRUMENTS

Some instruments are available for rent. Instruments are available only for use in SOMD classes and ensembles or when taking private lessons through the university. The fees vary and instruments must be returned at a predetermined date decided upon at the time of rental. Information is available from the Production Office and Instrument Room, room 175.
