Laurie Auditorium is a beautiful venue that plays an important role in both campus and community life. The amphitheater design and wide stage allow for excellent views throughout the hall. In addition to its design, the auditorium is the largest on-campus facility, seating an audience of 2,700.
The site of commencements, convocations, and Trinity’s high profile Distinguished Lecture Series, Laurie Auditorium frequently hosts San Antonio Symphony Young People’s Concerts, Children’s Fine Arts Series, jazz concerts, and Trinity in Focus programs. Artists like Jay Leno, Patti LaBelle, B.B. King, Vince Gill, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Duran Duran, and “Stomp” have all performed in recent years. Trinity also uses the auditorium for its Distinguished Lecture Series, which has brought to campus life a remarkable variety of former heads of state, journalists, writers, poets and numerous Nobel Laureates.
