The new University Chapel and Auditorium seats 3,800 between the raked main floor and in the two balconies. It is the largest indoor assembly space on campus, and the second largest in Indiana.  It will be used for graduation ceremonies, performing arts events, and of course, chapel. Acoustics By Design was brought in by Design Collaborative to provide full design of the Chapel's audio-visual systems, including the large rear projection displays which are integrated into the interior architecture. The Chapel was dedicated in January 2010 and has received excellent reviews.
