Where do people practice music for orchestra/music societies if they are not actually doing a music degree? Is it acceptable to practice in halls (during the day) or do universities have a designated space to do this?

You’ll piss people off in halls. If your uni has a music school ask there, or maybe the student union has a room available

It probably depends what you play. If it's an acoustic instrument such as classical guitar or maybe violin and a lot of woodwind instruments, you'll probably be fine in halls as long as you're not practicing super late and it's not too close to exams (if you were doing music you'd have a bit more of an excuse here). I play classical guitar, so it's not too loud. If you play electric guitar and can't plug in headphones to your amp or you play something like trumpet or saxophone, you'll probably be better off finding a practice room. You should be allowed to use them even if you're not a music student, but music students will probably be given priority (especially around exam time as they'll likely have recitals).

Halls are fine but don't play late at night or early in the morning.
My halls have a music room but I won't need it (classical guitar as well^)

So long as you don't play at unsociable times or for many hours each day, you'll probably be fine playing in your room.
