Memorial Auditorium is located at the prestigious Stanford University. In memory for all those students and faculty members who died during World War I, the hall is also known as the Memorial Hall or MemAud, colloquially. The hall was built through contributions by the students and was designed by Bakewell and Brown. The building has an arch at the entrance as well as on the sides, among other university standard structural designs. The hall has room to accommodate around 1700 audience members, and also holds the Pigott Theater. The auditorium stages a number of the university gatherings and has also played host to dignitaries such as former Vice President Al Gore. For more information, please contact the venue.
