Campbell Hall was originally designed as a lecture and recital hall. The building houses a standard proscenium stage and seating plan -- not the theater in the round one would expect from its exterior appearance. The seating capacity is 860 people on a single level with good sight lines and excellent natural acoustics.
The first priority for the assignment of Instructional Development equipment, facilities, and services is to support instruction on the UCSB campus. As funding permits, Classroom Services will provide service at no charge to campus academic departments during the regular academic year in order to support any courses which take place at the time and location listed in the current Schedule of Classes. Instructional Development also provides a broad range of audio/visual, video, and technical event support services on a cost recovery basis for special events and conferences.
