Section 10: College of Music Scheduling and Facilities

(10.1) College of Music Facilities

The UNT College of Music consists of a six-building complex, and three additional buildings in which the college shares occupancy with other university entities.

The buildings that are primarily used by the College of Music are: the College of Music Building, College of Music Annex, The North Music Practice Building, The South Music Practice Building, The Murchison Performing Arts Center, and The Murchison Performing Arts Center Annex. The shared buildings are Bain Hall, Chilton Hall, and the Main Auditorium.

Within these buildings are a number of venues used for performances and special events:

Main Auditorium Building

Main Auditorium

Access to the above facilities and the scheduling of space within them are regulated by the policy statements, procedures, and guidelines below.

Note: In addition to these spaces, the University has venues that are sometimes used for performances and special events such as the University Union, Gateway Center, DATCU Stadium and the Coliseum.

(10.2) Building Hours

Students and guests of the College of Music are required to observe the College of Music building hours. Faculty and staff may enter the building after hours, but are responsible for securing the building upon exiting.

Students and guests of the college are not permitted in the building after hours without faculty/staff supervision. To increase personal safety when the building is closed, and thus not supervised by university monitoring staff, exterior doors must not be propped open.

(10.3) Building Access and Keys

The regulation of access to College of Music Building is governed by the Access Control policy (University Policy Manual, section 11.005) and the Key Control Policy below.

(10.3.1) Key Control Policy

1. All faculty members are to receive keys to their studio/office and the building entrance. They may also request keys to the Recital Hall, Paul Voertman Concert Hall, and Graham Green Room. The building entrance key will also open some classrooms. The Percussion Area and Jazz Division have individual key systems for which each faculty member in those areas will receive a key. These faculty members will also receive a building entrance key.

2. A completed and approved Key Request is required for any keys to be issued.

3. All employees authorized to have keys will be charged $10.00 for each lost or unreturned key. Students are charged $150.00 for lost/unreturned keys.

4. Should a faculty member desire to provide access to their studio to student, the faculty member must fill out a studio access authorization form in the copy room (MU291). Copy room monitors will allow authorized students into the designated studios on a first come, first served basis. Students need to check-in at the copy room with their UNT ID card. Keys to studios may be issued to Teaching Fellows with Faculty approval. Faculty members are responsible for instructing students to return the studio key to the Copy room when their appointment has ended.

5. All key authorization request forms must be signed by the Building Operations Manager or the Associate Dean for Operations.

6. Keys are assigned to a specific individual and cannot be shared with or passed along to others. All keys must be returned to the Building Operations Manager or the copy room. Access Control policies for the College of Music may be reviewed and changed by the Associate Dean for Operations in consultation with the Dean.

(10.3.2) Percussion Keys

Key Check-Outs
Key rentals are available only to students who are in lessons for the semester, unless you have written permission from the percussion area coordinator. All key check-outs will be done with the instrumental studies administrative coordinator. The administrative coordinator will post specific times and dates each semester for students to check out keys. If none of the posted times are possible, students can email the administrative coordinator for an alternate time. All key payments must be made by cash or check. After the semester check-out deadline, keys cannot be checked out until the following semester without written approval from the percussion area coordinator.

Room Changes
If a student should need to switch drumset rooms with someone after the check-out deadline based on audition results, email the administrative assistant for Instrumental Studies copying the person you need to swap with and the percussion area coordinator. Once the percussion area coordinator grants permission, students may arrange a time to visit the division office to make the switch. Students must not switch keys under any other circumstances or loan their keys to any other student.

Key Renewals and Returns
All key renewals must be paid for in-person during the designated key return or renewal days/times unless an alternate time is approved by the administrative coordinator via email. Key returns may be done at any time prior to the semester return deadline either in person during the administrative coordinator’s office hours or via the After Hours Dropbox on the division office door. If returning keys after hours, all keys must be in a single envelope clearly labeled with the student’s name and the keys being returned. The administrative coordinator will send a confirmation email when the keys are received. DO NOT include another more than one student’s keys in each envelope.

Students are held responsible for the keys checked out at the beginning of the semester. If a student is out of town on the return deadline, they are still responsible for making arrangements to get the keys returned on time. Keys can be returned early at any time the building is open via the after-hours drop box.

Holds, Late Fees and Replacement Fees
If keys have not been returned by the third business day following the return deadline, a transcript hold will be placed on the student’s account which will be removed when the keys are returned, or lost key fine is paid.

Students will also be charged $10 per day per key in late fees up to $100 per key. Lost keys will be charged a $150 replacement and re-keying fee.
