Jacobs School of Music East Studio Building

The new 85,000-square-foot East Studio Building is on the northeast corner of Third Street and Jordan Avenue. It highlights the entrance to the university's music, fine arts, film and performing arts district, which includes concert halls, the Musical Arts Center, African American Arts Institute, IU Auditorium, IU Art Museum, Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts, Grunwald Gallery of Art, Lee Norvelle Theatre and Drama Center, IU Cinema, and the Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance.

Indiana University broke ground for the East Studio Building in April 2011. Its final design was approved by the IU Board of Trustees in February 2010, and its construction was made possible by a $44 million grant from the Lilly Endowment Inc. Also included as part of the grant are an addition to the west side of the Musical Arts Center, including large rehearsal rooms, an audio control room, musical technical shops and common spaces.

The building provides technologically and acoustically advanced teaching and practice facilities.

Each studio features high-definition videoconferencing capabilities, enabling faculty to teach interactively around the globe. In addition to 84 faculty studios, the building houses administrative offices for the Jacobs School of Music, including Admissions and Financial Aid, Undergraduate and Graduate Advising Services, and the Office of the Deans.
