The Great Hall is one of the principal structures of The University of Sydney; today a public interior embracing such purposes as formal ceremonies, conferences, recitals and dinners. The Hall, located in the Main Quadrangle on the Camperdown campus, is not only an iconic symbol of the University's stately history, but also an excellent architectural example of the Victorian Gothic revival. The seating in The Great Hall is general admission.
