Paul A. Johnston Auditorium

As we evolve to meet the needs of our students and the citizens of Johnston County,
we are pleased to announce that we will be renovating the Paul A. Johnston Auditorium.

While we are excited to share this news, we realize there may be concerns regarding the future of the auditorium. We are confident that these improvements will make your experience at Johnston Community College even more enjoyable, and we sincerely appreciate your understanding while we finalize these upgrades.

This notification will be removed upon completion of the rennovations to the auditorium.

The Tart Building is named for the founding president of Johnston Community College, John L. Tart, who was also a member of the North Carolina Legislature, and served from 1969 until his retirement in 1998. The 51,000-square-foot Tart Building includes a public-use auditorium, the SJCCTV studio, media services staff and classroom space for various academic programs. The building is also home to the box office and the Great Hall which is used for a variety of College and public functions. The 1,007-seat Paul A. Johnston Auditorium enables the College to showcase national touring performing arts programs and serves as the site for many local and regional events, such as recitals, pageants, band concerts, lectures, and other special community events.
