The Department of Dance and Theatre is housed in the Radio, TV, Film & Performing Arts (RTFP) Building and in the Dance and Theatre Arts (DATH) Building.

The department's two full-size performance venues are the University Theater and the Studio Theater which are both located in the RTFP building.

The University Theater is a proscenium stage with reserved continental seating for 409 patrons.

The Studio Theatre is a flexible performance space that changes according to the needs of each production. It can seat up to 160 patrons. Wheelchair seating is available upon advance request in both theatres.

The Department of Dance and Theatre has four dance studios in the Dance and Theatre Arts (DATH) Building that are wood sprung. Dance classes feature live accompaniment. Students and faculty also have access to a new Dance/Theatre Technology Lab for working directly with digital media and computer technology.

The sets, costumes, and props are designed and constructed in full-size shops in the Radio, Television, Film and Performing Arts (RTFP) Building. Design/Technology students have the unique opportunity to design at all levels of production.

Theatre instruction also takes place in the Design Lab, two acting and directing studios, the Lighting Laboratory, the Costume Shop, and Makeup Shop.
