Most of the Yale Music campus is located in the block bounded by College, Wall, Temple, and Elm streets. Abby and Mitch Leigh Hall, at 435 College Street, has reopened after a year of renovations. This beautiful building was built in 1930 in the Gothic style and has been thoroughly updated and modernized. It houses numerous faculty studios and three classrooms.

Hendrie Hall is the center for the School’s opera, brass, and percussion departments, with faculty studios, rehearsal space, and practice facilities. Hendrie also houses offices and practice space for the major undergraduate musical organizations, the University Bands Yale Glee Club, and Yale Symphony. Yale’s undergraduate music program is conducted at the Department of Music, located at 143 Elm Street.

Albert Arnold Sprague Memorial Hall, at the corner of College and Wall streets, reopened in the fall of 2003 after two years of extensive renovations. The Center for Studies in Music Technology is located in the lower level of the building, along with numerous practice rooms. The first floor houses the admissions, business, and concert offices, the registrar’s office, and the Fred Plaut Recording Studio. This fully equipped professional digital recording facility is linked directly to Morse Recital Hall, located on the second and third floors of the building. Morse Hall’s seating capacity is 680, and its stage accommodates 80 musicians. Morse Recital Hall is the School of Music’s primary performance venue, and is host to the Chamber Music Society at Yale, the Duke Ellington Fellowship concerts, New Music New Haven, the Horowitz Piano Series, the Faculty Artist Series, and many student recitals. On the top floor of the building is the Philharmonia headquarters, with a studio for the music director and an office for the ensembles manager. On the same level is a multimedia classroom and a faculty office for the Institute of Sacred Music.

Woolsey Hall is a magnificent hall, built in 1901 for the commemoration of Yale's bicentennial. The hall has an audience with a seating capacity of 2,695 and is used by the School of Music for major cancerts and recitals. Looming above and behind the Woolsey Hall stage is the Newberry Memorial Organ (E.M. Skinner, four manuals, 1928), one of the most renowned Romantic organs in the world.
