UTS's most important ceremonial venue underwent a complete reinvention under the City Campus Master Plan.
Opened in December 2011, the Great Hall has been transformed into a warm and dramatic cathedral-like space that can accommodate events from graduations to fashion shows and from formal dinners to public lectures and examinations.
Skylights within the Mantle draw natural light into the space, which combine with energy-efficient lighting systems.
Outside the Great Hall is the Balcony Room, a lofty space that will enjoy a spectacular view over the revitalised Alumni Green. It serves as a transitional space between the Great Hall and the rest of the university.
A key feature of the design is the perforated metal panels that wrap the ceiling and walls of the Great Hall and conceal state-of-the-art AV and lighting technology.
Inside the Great Hall is one of the largest indoor LED screens in Australia - at 16m wide and almost 5m high there's no missing it.
The Balcony Room
This newly-created ante room is the perfect place to relax and socialise before or after events in the Great Hall.
