Practice Space

Practice Space & Dance Studios


In efforts to provide active student organizations with as many resources for success as possible, the Efferson Student Union & Activities Office will be opening its doors to the Grand Ballroom.  Active student organizations can now reserve the Grand Ballroom for the purpose of having performance practices for FREE.

Process

  • The student organization must complete a Facility Request Form. Request for practice space will be accepted in the Efferson Student Union & Activities Office between 11 am-3 pm on Fridays for the following week.
  • When submitting, students will need to wait for their request to be reviewed and approved before occupying any ESAU spaces.
  • Practice times are limited to no more than three hours.
  • Student organizations will be limited to two practices per week.
  • Practices are limited to currently enrolled FAMU students and official advisers.  Alumni, children, and guests are not permitted.
  • Efferson Student Union will provide an empty room.  Student organizations are required to return the room to its original condition after each practice. 
  • Advisors must be present during the duration of the practice while in the space.
  • All student organization members must completely vacate the room at the end of their allotted time.  This includes clean-up time, equipment breaking down, and members' exiting.  
  • Student organizations are responsible for the conduct of members during the practice. 
  • Student organizations are responsible for any damages to the room or equipment in the room during the assigned practice time.  Damages must be reported to ESAU staff on duty immediately.
