Williams Performing Arts Center

The 92,000-square-foot WPAC is the second largest building on campus and one of the top performance venues among colleges and universities in the Southwest. It was part of the $100 million "To Lead and To Serve" campaign that raised more than $114 million for ACU.

  • The Lewis and Jerry Fulks Theatre
  • The Clara and James Culp Theatre
  • A 282-seat Recital Hall that is acoustically "tuneable" to accommodate the performing artist(s) and number of patrons.
  • The Empty Space, a multi-purpose rehearsal space that can serves as a dance studio, a classroom and a student workplace.
  • Spacious, modern dressing rooms and laundry rooms
  • Large instrument and choral rehearsal halls
  • A computer lab featuring Macs, PCs, and 16 electronic pianos
  • Forty-four acoustically treated practice rooms and faculty studios
  • Faculty offices and meeting rooms
  • State-of-the-art classrooms
  • Choral and band libraries
  • A box office, courtyard and sculpture garden
