Ruby Diamond Concert Hall is the primary performance venue for Florida State University and is located on the first floor of the Westcott building. It offers a 1,172 seating capacity without seats installed on the pit. Originally built in 1911 to serve as the main auditorium for the University, it was torn down in 1951 after developing a settling crack and was rebuilt in 1954. In 1971 the auditorium was named in honor of a generous benefactor to the University and a graduate of the Florida State College for Women.
