Jack Morton Auditorium

805 21st Street NW

The Jack Morton Auditorium (JMA), housed in the Media and Public Affairs Building, is a fixed seat venue with capacity of up to 244 people. The auditorium is a production studio with a fixed set, built-in audio, and broadcast lighting capabilities, as well as limited web conferencing infrastructure. A fixed camera, at the back of the auditorium, is focused at the stage which allows the far side of a web conference to see and hear proceedings on the stage. Additional cameras for more dynamic switched feeds and views of audience interactions can be contracted for an event. JMA is an ideal location venue for any event highlighting or engaging on current issues, public/government affairs, cultural affairs, for keynote speaker events, interviews, open forums, panel discussions, debates, honors ceremonies or small graduations and lectures.  JMA is often used along with reception space in the Art Gallery Lobby or Lower Level Lobby.
