Carver Hall is the icon of Bloomsburg University and is included in the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1869, it has evolved over the years: the dome was added in 1900 to give the building an Independence Hall look, and the clock in the tower came as a result of a fund-raising project by students and faculty in 1911. It houses the offices of the president and the provost and vice president for academic affairs, as well as the Kenneth S. Gross Auditorium on the second floor.
Kenneth S. Gross Auditorium
Housed on the second floor of Carver Hall is the lovely Kenneth S. Gross Auditorium. Renovated in 2014, this Victorian era intimate theatre seats 568. Used for lectures and small ensemble productions, Gross Auditorium is an ideal performance space and is the stage for Concerts @ Carver, the university’s showcase series for Pennsylvania and international performing artists.
Lecture and Presentation System
Gross Auditorium is equipped with a state of the art integrated projection system.
Rehearsal space can be provided on the stage proper. Requests for rehearsal space must be made at least two full weeks in advance.
Two interconnected backstage dressing spaces provide spacious, private preparation for performers. A private lavatory is located adjacent to the dressing area. Dressing rooms are equipped with lighted mirrors and make-up counters.
