Total Seated Capacity: 420 guests
Orchestra: Up to 306 guests
Balcony: Up to 114 guests
Our auditorium is perfect for any event—screenings, concerts, talks, meetings, panel discussions, and commencement ceremonies. Because of its curved architectural design, our auditorium, while generous in size, remains an intimate setting. We provide onsite AV support and have basic lighting, audio, and video systems available for many types of events. We can also accommodate additional equipment brought in for tech-focused events.
