The school's facilities, including five buildings located in the heart of the IU Bloomington campus, comprise outstanding recital halls, more than 170 practice rooms, choral and instrumental rehearsal rooms, and more than 100 offices and studios. The grandest facility is the Musical Arts Center, which features technical capabilities that are among the best in the nation. 

The Indiana University Opera and Ballet Theater produces six fully staged operas and three fully staged ballets per season.  With the goal of providing the young artists of the Jacobs School with a professional experience the theater hires top professional conductors, stage directors, and designers from the industry.  Combined with a world class faculty, facilities, and staff the theater operates as a level 2/3 company.  The 190,000 square foot Musical Arts Center features a theater with a computerized three wagon stage system with a 48ft programmable turntable, ten story fly space, adjustable proscenium, orchestra pit that will accommodate up to 100 pieces orchetras, and a house that seats 1436.
