The space in the “dome,” formerly called Perkins Auditorium, received an extensive face-lift with the Chambers Building renovation in 2004. Palladian windows, once boarded, opened Hance to generous light while mechanical shades address the functional needs of the auditorium.
The renovation of the space was made possible by a gift from Beverly Smith Hance and James H. Hance, Jr., parents of Meredith James Hance Class of 2001 and Blair Hudson Hance Class of 2005.
Hance Auditorium is located on the top floor of Chambers Building, accessible from stairs in the lobby. Parking is available along Main Street, Concord Road or in public parking at Baker Sports Complex.
