A Music Facilities Service Fee (MFSF) card must be purchased in order to practice in rooms within the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music facilities. Largely, these grant access to practice rooms within the building but are also required for practicing in classrooms/rehearsal rooms (when available/reserved). MFSF cards must be displayed in the window slot at all times when using a room. Please visit the main office (Schoenberg 2520) to apply for an MFSF card.
What is the cost, and what does it include?
The quarterly fee for a basic MFSF card is $57 and allows you to use the practice rooms and classrooms when they are available. All payments are made online through Bruin Bill. We do not accept cash, card, Venmo, etc.
In addition to using any open rooms, MFSF cardholders can reserve 2 hours in a practice room per week. Additional reservation time can be added to the MFSF card package by paying an additional:
$17 = 5 hours of total reservation time
$34 = 10 hours of total reservation time
$51 = 15 hours of total reservation time
$68 = 20 hours of total reservation time
Lockers are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you have a large instrument, please visit the main office before Fall Quarter begins to increase your chances of getting a locker for the year.
Cancellations of the MFSF card/package must be made before the end of the 2nd week of the quarter/session to be eligible for a refund. Any checked-out keys or lockers must be returned by the end of the quarter printed on your MFSF card (e.g. If your card says Fall-Spring, your keys/locker need to be returned by the end of Spring Quarter).
The fee for a lost key = $29
MFSF card replacement fee = $23
Late locker renewal/retrieval of confiscated belongings from a locker that was not renewed = $86
