Kingsbury Hall is a center for the performing arts located on the University of Utah campus in Salt Lake City, Utah.


Kingsbury Hall was designed by Edward O. Anderson and Lorenzo Snow Young and built in 1930.[2] It was named after Joseph T. Kingsbury, former president of the University. Many of Utah's performing arts organizations started in Kingsbury Hall including Ballet West and Utah Opera.[2] Along with eight buildings along University Circle, Kingsbury Hall is part of the University of Utah Circle historic district,[3] which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[4]
