This page describes the wide array of activity rooms that Leverett has to offer.
Music Practice Rooms
In addition to the grand piano located in the JCR, practice pianos are located in the small rooms in the basements of A Entry and B Entry and one practice piano in D entry. Practice rooms are open at McKinlock 24/7.
Rock Music Practice Rooms
The music rooms in A and D Entries are not sufficiently soundproof for very loud music. There is a practice room in the basement of G-Tower that is suitable for rock bands. The Rock Scene tutor, Kevin Stone, coordinates the use of this room.
In addition to computers for student use, Leverett has a laser printer and a terminal link to Harvard's mainframe computer in the Science Center. There is also a fax machine available for student use. The computer room is located on the bottom floor of the library/superintendents' building and is open from 8:00 AM to 12 midnight or whenever the building is staffed.

Leverett Gym Etiquette
- Please keep the gym neat and tidy. At the end of your workout, wipe down cardio machines using the Clorox wipes provided. Re-rack your weights and return all other equipment to its proper place. Turn off the TV(s) and fan(s) if you are the last person to leave.
- If you notice equipment out of order or missing, please e-mail gym tutor Siri Uotila.
- Please respect House-wide quiet hours starting at 11 pm on weeknights and 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays.
- Olympic lifting is not permitted in the Lev gym. Please exercise at your own fitness level and contact your physician and/or the gym tutors if you have questions.
The Lev Gym is overseen by gym tutors Mel Leger, Raj Manrai and Siri Uotila. Please contact us if you have any questions, comments or suggestions regarding the gym. Bunny fitness is important and we hope that many of you will make use of our wonderful gym!
Located in F-entry, the art studio includes easels, desks, and other supplies. This room is not ready yet - talk to Chief about plans.
Pool and Ping-Pong Room
A pool table and ping-pong table are located in the basement of D Entry. Foosball and Air Hockey are located in A basement.
The Old Library, located off C-entryway, is a large space suitable for rehearsals and group meetings. Performances may not be held in the Old Library because the space is not handicap accessible.

A small kitchen with cooking supplies in The Rabbit Hole is available to all students. A key to the kitchen is available in the guard's office.
