Robert E. Mortensen Hall

On September 12, 2013, the Mason Gross School of the Arts unveiled its first new building in nearly two decades—Robert E. Mortensen Hall, a glass-enclosed, nearly 24,000-square-foot facility within the Mason Gross Performing Arts Center on Douglass Campus. The building rises above Ryders Lane and Route 18 and serves the conservatory’s Music, Dance, and Theater departments, providing additional rehearsal and performance spaces.
