Organization Type

Mandel Hall , the University’s premier concert venue, is located within the Reynolds Club at 1131 E. 57th St. Mandel is available to all manner of organizations, including RSOs. Mandel Hall’s rich Victorian interior includes seating for 878 audience members, an ornate balcony, majestic windows (including one made by Tiffany & Co. given to the University by the class of 1902), and detailed oak woodwork. The concert hall is also equipped with extensive lighting and sound systems.

Mandel Hall recently underwent a major renovation that finished in January 2013, which focused on improving the interior of the theater and included new seating, new reflectors and installing a fire and sprinkler alarm system, as well as other minor improvements. While there were new additions to the space, the changes were done in way as to ensure the historic look and feel of the theater was maintained.
