Welcome to Taylor Hall

Although Taylor Hall is the oldest building on Western’s campus, it’s recent renovations make it look and feel brand new. 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, the modern studio theatre and more. When you visit, be sure to check out Taylor Hall’s numerous smart classrooms and spacious auditorium.

Taylor Auditorium

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