Highlights of the Fine Arts Hall include:
- A 606-seat auditorium with superior acoustics
The use of natural wood provides a warm, rich feel to the auditorium. The seats have been arranged for minimum distance between performers and audience. The massive walls provide excellent sound reflection, and in combination with the room volume a highly reverberant space appropriate for unamplified music.
- Large multi-purpose classroom
This space can be used as a dance studio, hall or performance space. Design of the multipurpose classroom replicates the area of the stage, making it perfect for practicing.
- High-end audio/visual, theatrical lighting and equipment
The sound system employs high quality speakers in the auditorium in 11 different locations to ensure quality, amplified sound to every seat. Lighting positions are available from 4 catwalks above the ceiling as well as from the concealed side lighting positions.
- Scene shop, costume shop, make-up and dressing suites
The scene shop is designed to build high-rise sets in the shop area. Because of the 26-foot high back-stage door, high-rising sets can be rolled on to the stage area, making the stage available for other events while sets are being built. The dressing suites can accommodate up to 200 performers backstage.
The Fine Arts Hall significantly expands the educational offerings and broadens the performance opportunities for students. The state-of-the-art hall houses the successful SF performing groups such as:
- Dance Theatre of Santa Fe
- Santa Fe Singers
- Santa Fe Jazz Ensemble

Performances in dance, music, theatre and the visual arts continue to build on the excellence that Santa Fe College offers. The elegant styling and contemporary engineering empower the Fine Arts Hall as a top venue of fine arts in Florida. Students, faculty and the community alike benefit from Santa Fe having a legacy for the cultural arts on campus.
