    Do you think it would be an issue if I took a keyboard with me into halls?

    I'm hoping to get myself into university in September and I am a piano player! But I'm doing an animation course.

    I would have my headphones plugged in and everything, so other people couldn't hear it...I don't like people hearing it anyway

    It should be fine. Just ensure you keep your room closed.

    Have you enquired to see whether your University has practice rooms?

    Yeah ofcourse! I would have headphones in so it would be silent anyways.

    And I haven't yet, I will keep that in mind!

    Thanks!~

    No problem. I had an electric piano in halls.

    Some universities might have practice rooms as well where you could practice on an actual piano. Mine did.

    Hi,

    I’m not sure about other university’s policies on this but at Derby, as long as you use your headphones, it would be absolutely fine. There are people in my halls who play guitar and even that is fine so long as they stop after about 11pm so that we can sleep. I’ve not heard of anyone having any issues with keyboard, especially since you’ll be wearing headphones. You may just have to be a bit more organised to make room for the keyboard in your room but other than that I can’t see any issue with it. Just make sure to email the university’s student living team to double check.

    Hope that helps,

    Molly
