Information about gaining access to the Music Practice Room (MPR):
1. The Music Practice Room is a located on the 6th Floor of the Old Building, through the Shaw Library. As access is granted via your LSE ID card, once you purchase your membership you may have to wait at least a week before you can gain access to the MPR because your ID card details need to be set up on both the LSE Room Bookings and the LSE Security systems.
2. Early each week (usually Tuesday) the LSESU Activities Team will send LSE Security details of any new members who have joined the LSESU Music Society from the previous 7 days. LSE Security will set up each person to have access to the MPR with their LSE card; as a result only LSE Students and Staff members can gain entry into the MPR.
3. LSE Security will inform the LSE Room Bookings office when this done. If you wish to book the MPR, first email your request to Lse.Roombookings@lse.ac.uk and state that you would like to gain booking rights to the MPR.
4. The Room Bookings team will then grant you access to the MPR via this room bookings website: https://mybookings.lse.ac.uk/
5. Login, in the bookings tab click 'Music Practice Room', click the Music Practice Room-Shaw Library section and check the available time slots. Please input 'Music Practice Room-(Your Name)' as the title and select the relevant timeslot required.
6. It helps to check out the Dailylist to see what functions are on if you see a large section of the day being marked as 'unavailable'. If there is a function in the Shaw Library, the MPR will be unavailable during that time. Access the dailylist here: http://www.lse.ac.uk/school/timetables/eventsDailyList/Dailylist.htm
