Russell Hall is one of two major facilities housing the School of Music. It has been the home of the School of Music since 1962 and re-opened after a 10 million dollar renovation which occurred in 2007-08. The building contains a newly renovated 400-seat auditorium and a new addition which includes a chamber music hall, jazz rehearsal room (jazz studio), state-of-the art recording studio. New music education classrooms were added along with technology enhanced classrooms throughout the building. Newly built practice rooms (including recording and sound isolated practice modules), faculty offices, dressing rooms, instrument repair room, computer/composition lab, and a complete renovation of the remaining spaces are features of this facility.
