Royce Hall. Modeled after a church, named for a philosopher. You reach it via brick walkways and tiled terraces, through sculpture gardens and sleek lawns. No matter which route you take or what other buildings you pass along the way, when you reach Royce Hall, the feeling is, "Of course." Of course it's here, at UCLA's heart. Shelter. Asylum. One of the university's original four buildings, the hall was built on a sheep pasture, long since given way to an elegant quad.

For the first time in its 65 years as UCLA's showplace auditorium, people are hoping that the latest Royce Hall production does not bring down the house. This one is no classical ballet or New Age jazz concert or high-brow stage show, however. It's a mock magnitude 4 earthquake designed to show structural engineers where emergency seismic repairs and retrofitting are needed most at the Romanesque performance hall.

About 500 people, members of a student group called the Affirmative Action Coalition, marched through the campus and peacefully entered Royce Hall at about 12:30 p.m. After allowing students and faculty to leave, about 150 of the protesters remained to occupy the building, said Jeff Snyder, a spokesman for UCLA.

The theater in UCLA's Royce Hall, the architectural symbol and showcase venue for the school, will remain closed for at least two months, and may even remain so into 1995, university officials predicted Wednesday. The towers of the Romanesque building suffered some structural damage in the Jan. 17 earthquake, and the auditorium cannot be used until they are shored up--a process that campus architect Charles Oakley hopes can be completed within two months.
