Brooks Center for the Performing Arts is Clemson University's theatrical and performing arts center. It houses two theaters which host many productions and concerts throughout the year and has a wide variety of performing arts classrooms, including classrooms for instruction in vocals, musical instruments, etc.

There are a number of piano practice rooms availiable at all hours while the building is open, to all students. To reach the rooms go in the main door, head straight back, and into the alcove directly in front.

The building is named for alumnus and donor, Robert H. Brooks, class of 1960. The building was completed in 1994 and opened January 22. Robert H. Brooks, founder and chairman of Naturally Fresh Dressings, Sauces and Dips and president of Atlanta-based Hooters of America, Inc., named the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts for his son Mark, who died in the same plane crash as NASCAR driver Alan Kulwicki.
