University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Welcome to Foellinger Auditorium

Foellinger Auditorium is located at the South end of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign quadrangle; since its original dedication in 1907, millions of people have passed its doors as students and patrons.

Not simply a large lecture hall for undergraduate classes, the Auditorium has hosted a long list of notable orators and performers over the past 90 years. The Foellinger Auditorium history gives a brief glimpse.
