Constructed in 1881, Washington Hall is the original performing arts facility on the Notre Dame campus. Washington Hall is operated by the Student Activities Facilities team. The hall serves our campus community as a venue for events, meetings, lectures, performances, and rehearsals. Our primary focus is to serve the student clubs and organizations recognized by the Student Activities Office. We are proud to be the student body’s main venue for extracurricular productions.
The building is divided into five main areas:
571 seat auditorium suitable for theatrical productions, musicals, pageants, and lectures.
REHEARSAL ROOM 110
A large room suitable for dance practice and performing arts rehearsals.
Located on the third floor, a black box theatre with seating for 90+. Great for small scale theatrical productions and rehearsals.
The Scene Shop, located on the first floor, is available for student groups to build sets for their productions.
CLUB OFFICES & STORAGE ROOMS
Space allocation is made on an annual basis during the spring semester during the club registration process. Assignments are made by the Student Activities Office, in consultation with the Washington Hall staff. Questions regarding the use of these areas should be directed to Ron Grisoli, Director of Student Activities Facilities.
