The School of Music is housed in Robert Glidden Hall, a six-story facility which contains classrooms, practice rooms, faculty studios and offices, midi lab, keyboard labs, the Music & Dance library, administrative offices, instrument repair shops, recording facility, student lockers, graduate associate offices, and student organization offices.
Glidden Hall also includes large rehearsal rooms and a two-hundred seat recital hall. Large ensembles and opera productions typically perform in the recently refurbished two-thousand seat Templeton Blackburn Memorial Auditorium, located one block from Glidden Hall. Additional on-campus performance venues include Galbreath Chapel, which houses a Bediant 18-stop tracker organ, Baker Center (which houses a theater, ballroom and 2 stage areas), and the Ridges Auditorium.
Glidden Hall houses the Music & Dance Library, a collection encompassing scores, books, recordings, videos, periodicals, and microforms related to the needs and interests of the Schools of Music, Dance, and Interdisciplinary Arts. Facilities in the Music & Dance Library also include computer terminals (Mac and PC), scanners, a midi station, video viewing, and listening area. The library's collection can be found online via ALICE, the Ohio University Library catalog system.
