Practice Rooms and other facilities

Located near the seafront in Old College, the University Music Centre provides facilities for students and the local community, and promotes a wide-ranging programme for performers and listeners.

The Centre has practice rooms available to students of all degree programmes, staff and others, and teaching spaces for those wishing to recieve instrumental or vocal lessons.  It has numerous pianos, a two-manual electronic organ, harp, harpsichord and chamber organ, as well as percussion and other instruments. The Old College is also home to the Music Library, which houses a large sheet-music collection with particularly strong holdings of chamber and orchestral music. In addition, music books can be found in the Hugh Owen Library - and, of course, the enormous resources of the National Library of Wales are close at hand.

Use of the Practice Rooms is only available to those who have purchased a Music Card.  The card can be bought via the University's Online Shop or in the Music Centre Office.
