Default where to practice

It will be 6 months for me to stay at another university for some academic activities, I took my violin with me, but found no place to practice, except the musicial room, which, however, is only available to their own students.
It is terrible if I have to drop it for such a long time. What earthly idea I could have in keeping practice is puzzling me.
I would esteem it a great kindness, if you could favor me with any suggestion.

Go into a forest. If you're living in a city, find an old abandoned warehouse.

Exclamation Practice Mute

Get a nice metal (not rubber!) practice mute (like $10 online, I think). It will mute you down to next to nothing, and you'll be able to practice in places you normally wouldn't because the sound is so greatly reduced. Not ideal for daily practice, but at least you get to play

Post Be careful!

Be careful when buying a practise mute - I had one that I used on my old violin and it worked great but messed my bridge up because the metal was digging into and denting the wood. You could ask your university for special permission to practise in the practise room, and possibly ask if there are any other available spaces. Whatever you do, don't give up!
