Students are responsible for requesting space in Schmucker Hall for events such as recital rehearsals and group meetings. R25 is the system used for space reservation on campus.

The first step for using R25 is to obtain a password. Here are the guidelines:

  1. Pick up and complete a profile form from Cathy Zarrella (, Scheduling Coordinator (Campus Phone: x6302). Mrs. Zarrella's office is just beyond the CUB Junction, past the wall of windows. There is an envelope holding the forms on outside of her office door.  If Mrs. Zarrella is not available, completed forms can be slid under her office door.
  2. A request for an account will be processed as soon as possible after receiving a completed form. Once processed, the student will receive an email that includes "how-to" instructions; it's important to make note of the password contained in the email.
  3. 25Live may then be used to check room availability

To submit a reservation request, follow these instructions. Allow 3 to 5 days for processing of a request Practice rooms are available for use by music majors, music minors, those participating in faculty-directed ensembles, and those taking private studio instruction.

Food and drink (with the exception of bottled water) are not permitted in the practice rooms.

Students using practice rooms or classrooms are reminded to make sure that the door is open, the windows closed, and the lights turned off upon leaving the room.
