Lilly Hall

Lilly Exterior

Situated next door to Clowes Hall, Lilly Hall anchors the northeast corner of the Butler campus. Dedicated on December 9, 1962, the building is home to the School of Music as well as the Departments of Dance and Theatre.

The building is named after Eli Lilly, founder of the drug company that bears his name, due to a large donation given to the Jordan College of Music through the auspices of the Lilly Endowment. Lilly Hall boasts numerous faculty offices, practice rooms, dance studios and also serves as the home for the music libraries of the band, orchestra, and choral departments.

In 1994, the Prototype Multimedia Teaching Facility, now called the Multisensory Learning Facility, was added. In 2003, a major addition to Lilly Hall was completed, the Allen Whitehill Clowes Pavilion, adding rehearsal facilities for each of the ensembles, a new percussion studio and a new home to the Electronic Music Studio, as well as facilities for the theatre and dance departments.
