Old Cabell Hall - Summer 2017 Construction Update

Old Cabell Hall will be closed during summer 2017 for electrical and plumbing upgrades.  

  • Practice Rooms and Instrument Lockers will not be available over the summer.
  • Classroom locations for our summer classes will be listed in SIS and on our website as they are confirmed.
  • Office locations will be posted on the web when they are confirmed



Old Cabell Hall will be temporarily closed this summer for electrical and plumbing upgrades, and with it the Music Library. We want you to be able to plan to check out any items you need before May 13 and to let you know how to contact the Library for services during the closure. The library staff – Winston Barham, Abby Flanigan, Bill Sun, Ruth Dillon, and Perry Roland – will all have temporary offices nearby and will be happy to help with any research and reference needs. Their contact information will be available here.

The library collection will be “sheltered in place” and will have monitors in place to keep track of the physical conditions during construction. We won’t have access to the collection during the construction so we’re encouraging everyone to keep or check out what they need now so they’ll have it during the summer. New items purchased for the Music Library or its users during the closure will be available for circulation.

Check this page for updates during the closure, and please don’t hesitate to contact us any time.
