Inside the Hop

There are two main entrances to the Hopkins Center:

The East Wheelock entrance (across from the Dartmouth Green) is closest to The Moore Theater, Bentley Theater and Top of the Hop. The Moore balcony and Top of the Hop can be reached by stairs up from the Moore Lobby, and the Bentley can be reached by stairs down from that lobby.

The Lebanon Street entrance is closest to Spaulding Auditorium and Faulker Recital Hall. Spaulding can be reached by stairs up from that entrance, and Faulkner can be reached by stairs down from the entrance. Elevator access to both Spaulding and Faulkner is to your right as you enter the building.

The Box Office, Jaffe-Friede Gallery and elevator to the Top of the Hop/Moore Balcony and Bentley are located at the heart of the building, halfway between the two main entrances.
