The Buffalo State Performing Arts Center is conveniently located in the heart of the museum district on the SUNY Buffalo State campus. The Performing Arts Center is located inside Rockwell Hall, the signature building for the campus. Rockwell Hall sits on Elmwood Avenue, directly across the street from the Albright Knox Art Gallery - look for the white bell tower.

The Performing Arts Center and box office are located on the main floor of Rockwell Hall. Box office hours are Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and one hour prior to performance times. The auditorium usually opens for seating 30 minutes prior to curtain time.

The Elmwood Village, with many restaurants, bars, and shops, is a short distance away. The Elmwood Village Association website offers a Dining Guide. For out-of-town guests, the Visitor Buffalo Niagara website offers a Hotel Listing.
