Rizza Auditorium


Named for former Academy president RADM Joseph P. Rizza, this auditorium is the premiere campus venue for large gatherings. Seating over 500 guests, the auditorium can host musical and theatrical productions, multimedia lectures, film screenings, formal ceremonies, and more.


A fitting entrance to this grand space, the Rizza Auditorium lobby can be used for receptions, guest registration, and even as a small dining, dancing, or conference venue on its own. 

Main Hall


Please note: food and drink are not permitted in the main hall, but may be enjoyed in the lobby.

Rizza Auditorium accommodates 501 guests in 17 rows. Each seat has a cushioned seat and back. The seating is distributed in three main areas:

  • Main Seating Area

    The main seating area provides 305 seats, and expands from 26 seats in row A to 35 seats in row J. Wheelchairs may be accommodated behind the last row of seats.
  • Rear Seating Area

    The rear seating areas (2) provide 98 seats each, and include 14 seats in all rows (K through Q). The areas should be distinguished by using a -R (north) or -L (south) suffix on ticket numbers.
