Taylor Hall

Welcome to Taylor Hall. 

Taylor Hall was the first building on Western's campus and, besides being the oldest building, it is quite new considering its multiple updates and renovations. This LEED certified building is home to Western's administrative offices as well as Communication Arts, Language and Literature courses. It sits atop a beautiful and sweeping lawn and houses everything from the Welcome Center to the radio station to the modern studio theatre and more. If you are ever lucky enough to find yourself inside this monument be sure to visit the numerous smart classrooms and spacious auditorium and of course take in Taylor Hall's immense appeal.

Taylor Auditorium

Taylor Auditorium is a traditional proscenium auditorium located on the second floor of Taylor Hall. This space, while more rigid than the flexible Studio Theatre, offers an ideal setting for shows that require large stage space for performance; dance shows, classical theatrical productions and speech/convocation events.
