Meetings & Non-ticketed Events
IU Auditorium serves as the community’s gathering place, hosting university ceremonies, orientation programs, trade shows, weddings, and student productions through making itself available to outside users.
Next to Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, IU Auditorium boasts the largest theatre capacity in Bloomington. The beautiful and historic spaces, professional backstage and front-of-house services, hands-on event management, flexible lobby spaces, and a host of satisfied customers make it an ideal location for a variety of events, both private and public.
Many of our meeting and non-ticketed events happen on an annual basis, including:
- Best Buddies Leadership Conference
- College of Arts and Sciences Direct Admit Reception
- IU Freshman Induction
- Kelley School of Business ICORE Orientation
- MBA Experience Reception
- IU School of Law School Commencement Ceremony
- Taste of Asia
“The Auditorium staff is so well qualified and knowledgeable; you definitely get your money’s worth. Part of the reason why we rent the Auditorium instead of another location on campus is because of all of the advice and suggestions we receive along the way — for student groups that see a high level of turnover year after year, that is invaluable!”
Tony Truong, IU Asian American Association
The full-service staff at the Auditorium is dedicated to working with you to create the perfect event. For more information, including available dates, please fill out our online rental inquiry form or contact:
