The Robert H. Smith Auditorium

Total Seated Capacity:  420 guests
Orchestra: Up to 306 guests
Balcony: Up to 114 guests

Our auditorium is perfect for anything from screenings, concerts, and lectures to meetings, panel discussions, and commencements.  Despite its generous seating capacity, the auditorium maintains an intimate setting thanks to its concave architecture.   We offer onsite a/v support and a solid inventory for basic needs, but can also accommodate additional equipment for more tech-heavy events.
