Evolving health and safety restrictions have created certain limitations and protocols for the Instrument Room. Follow all guidelines carefully and watch for updates.   
 
With instructor permission, instruments are NORMALLY available at no charge to currently enrolled students participating in School of Music ensembles or classes. A current BuckID is required to open an Instrument Room account. 
 
AS OF AUGUST 2021, current health and safety protocols have precluded our ability to loan instruments to non-music majors for use in ensembles at this time.

This policy may change with the fluidity of the pandemic.  In the event of a policy change, an announcement will be posted on this page. 


The Process

Students wishing to use Instrument Room instruments must:

  1. Contact their class or ensemble instructor to initiate a DocuSign bond card. This process must be initiated by a faculty member. Bond cards are legally binding documents used to enforce the borrower's responsibility to return School of Music property to the Instrument Room in its original condition, less the wear of normal use.
  2. Upon successful completion of the DocuSign bond card process, the instrument borrower will be contacted by the Instrument Room manager to set an appointment for instrument pick-up.
  3. The requirement of instrument insurance will be determined at the discretion of the Instrument Room manager.

Hours of Operation

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, access to the Instrument Room is by appointment ONLY. Email questions and/or request for appointment to ASC-sominstrumentroom@osu.edu.
