Our 406-seat auditorium is ideal for a wide range of meetings and spoken-word programs, from lectures and seminars to award presentations and panel discussions. The space offers a sophisticated, powerful sound system offering multiple microphone options. Its wonderful acoustics work well for small-ensemble performances (e.g., chamber music), and bright, large-screen projection systems (XGA and 720p HD) support a variety of electronic media. A highly skilled team of audio/visual technicians ensure that even the most complex programs run smoothly.

Capacity: 406 cinema-style seating
