Rehearsal room with a piano and a drum kit

Practice rooms

The Colyer-Fergusson Building has a suite of music practice rooms available to all University of Kent students and staff for individual and group music practice/rehearsal. (Please see new guidelines regarding room occupancy below).


From 13 September you will be able to purchase the new annual permit.

The rooms have revised occupancy numbers, and booking has returned to hour slots. Please note you will only be able to book up to 5 hours a week.

And for the foreseeable future, as part of our Track & Trace system all users must book a room, prior to use. 

Please continue to sanitise your hands, before entry and on exiting the rooms, and opening the windows to ventilate the rooms.

Practice Rooms are available 9am to 10pm, Monday to Sunday (unless there is a performance in Colyer-Fergusson Hall).

Please note, once you have purchased your permit you will still need to contact the Music Administrator to have your KentOne card activated.
