The Strauss Performing Arts Center is the home of the University of Nebraska at Omaha Department of Music. The 56,000-square-foot building is located west of the Milo Bail Student Center on UNO's Dodge Street campus. It features classrooms, instrument and vocal rehearsal rooms, music studios, offices, conference rooms, a listening laboratory, and a recital hall. It was originally constructed as the UNO Fine Arts Building, completed in 1973, and sometime later renamed the UNO Performing Arts Center. In 1984, it was renamed again to the Willis A. and Janet S. Strauss Performing Arts Center. The recital hall, when not in use by the UNO community, is available for rental for concerts and other events from the wider Omaha community.
