Fall 2021 Updates

Covid-19 Resources for Students


If you are NOT returning to the School of Music this fall, you must return all keys and/or FOBs to Facilities (the building where you picked them up). Key returns can be done 24/7, as they have a drop box with envelopes and forms at their front door. Make sure to select on the form to have them email you a receipt. Important: once you receive the receipt, forward it to Glenn so we can mark you off of our records.


Locker checkouts for fall will begin on August 16, either in person at Capistrano 121 or via email (preferred). When emailing, be sure to mention what instrument(s) you need a lcoker for.


For all instrument check-outs, please see Daniel Truitt in Capistrano 133, or email him.
