Information about gaining access to the Music Practice Room (MPR):
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 as the MPR has swipe card access to it.
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.
LSE Security will inform the LSE Room Bookings office when this done and you should be able to book the room by Friday evening. Due to the current technical difficulties with the new online resource booker for room bookings, if you wish to book the MPR then please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The MPR is accessed via the Shaw Library in the Old Building.
Music Society can be whatever its members desire. So whether you are interested in performing, listening or anything else musical, the Music Society is your gateway to the music scene at the LSE.
