Part of the University Centre Farquhar Auditorium's attraction is due to its unique architectural design. Built as part of the eight million dollar University Centre complex designed by the Wade Williams Partnership of Victoria, the Auditorium is the first "surround" hall built in Canada. The prime objectives of the facility's design were to provide good acoustics and sightlines from all seats. These objectives were successfully met, evidenced by the Auditorium's national reputation as an acoustic venue. The architectural design is enhanced by the interior's stunning wood lined stage and creative lighting. The beautiful Clearihue organ adds majesty to the environment and has become a tourist attraction in its own right.

Seating Plan

Following what is known as a `continental' seating plan, the Auditorium seats are placed in unbroken rows. Each row has been spaced one foot farther apart than is conventionally done to allow for ample legroom and comfort.


The Auditorium was designed to reflect and project sound as cleanly as possible and with this consideration several features have been included in the Auditorium:
thin vertical ridges finish the walls to reflect high frequency sound waves.
