Abstract This study proposes that facility standards of backstage areas within performance halls should consider applying universal design elements to each space; the international universal design system, domestic law, and domestic universal design status applied in performance halls were investigated and analyzed. Through a case study of domestic performance halls, which could use universal design, uncovering how much universal design related elements were applied to the backstage of their performance halls was evaluated. Surveys were taken by domestic and foreign performers to analyze their perception of universal design and their satisfaction levels of convenience facilities related to each target facility. Upon analyzing the case study and field surveys, the universal design evaluation method was applied. From the perspective of universal design laws and regulations, the field survey revealed that the application of universal design standards was relatively good in the performer’s space compared to the exterior facilities, internal facilities, sanitary facilities, and information facilities. On the other hand, the surveys reflected low satisfaction in the performer's space regarding the universal design element of each space viewed. The results from the comparative analysis of each space revealed that there was a large difference in the sensibility of the inner passage, the stage, the performer's space, and other convenience facilities.
