Hall Auditorium

The building was completed in 1908 and for eighteen years was called either the Administration Building or the Auditorium. In 1926 it was named Benton Hall and was so designated until the Benton name was moved to a new classroom building. In 1969 it was renamed for the last time to Hall Auditorium, after the fifth President of Miami University, John W. Hall.

Hall Auditorium is now the site for most of the Music Department's large concerts. With a seating capacity of 735 and a location just a block from "uptown" in Oxford, Hall is a convenient point of contact between Miami University performing artists and the public.

The Auditorium has hosted various speakers and performers including; Robert Frost, Frank Lloyd Wright, and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Hall was also used as a set for the movie "Ides of March" starring George Clooney and Ryan Gosling.
