Located on the western edge of our downtown campus, right next to one of the most dynamic urban arts districts in the country, Allard Hall will blend dynamic learning and performance spaces with retail shops, gathering places and a central atrium.
More than just a building, Allard Hall will be a space where creativity and innovation thrive. A space for students and faculty to fuel their passions, hone their craft, take risks and imagine fearlessly.
The Centre for the Arts and Communications will be open until June 30, 2017.
In Fall 2017 the stunning new Allard Hall, located on our downtown campus, will open. This new building will feature galleries, stages, exhibition space, interactive teaching lab, fine art installation lab, proscenium theatre, black box theatre, fly tower, photo and video studio, recording studios, rehearsal studios; recital hall, audio lab, drawing, painting and sculpture studios; technology-enhanced classrooms, wardrobe lab, construction, welding, painting and fabrication shops.

The fundamental values of society exist in arts and culture. Your values reside in your head, but arts and culture reside in your heart; and when you bring your heart and head together, you achieve great things.
