Building Access Request
Student staff may request card access to the Tiger Band Hall. Requests are reviewed by both the Department of Bands and the College of Music & Dramatic Arts.
The use of Department of Bands-controlled spaces may be requested by Tiger Band students for band-related reasons, such as official meetings or sectionals. All requests are evaluated by staff and/or directors prior to approval.
To request use of a space, first consult the appropriate room calendar to check availability, then submit the Room Reservation Request Form. In the event a Department of Bands-controlled space is not available, you may request a School of Music or Music & Dramatic Arts Building space by visiting the School of Music website.
