Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Center for the Musical Arts

This brand-new glittering lakeside gem on the southern end of Northwestern’s campus houses the Bienen School of Music’s rehearsal, performance, classroom, and administrative spaces, and the School of Communication Dean’s office staff, as well as the administration for the Department of Theatre, the Department of Performance Studies, and the Dance Program. The show-stopping lobby views have attracted visitors from all over campus and the surrounding community, and its certified LEED Gold status ensures a healthy, green, and productive space for both schools to thrive. The Ryan Center was dedicated in September 2015.
