Gallery Spaces

Gallery space for undergraduate visual art projects is available within many of the residential colleges and cultural centers. Most of the college spaces are prioritized for use by students in that college. Students should plan to display their project in the gallery in their own college if possible.  In these cases, the galleries are allocated through the Creative and Performing Arts award process.

Be sure to review the details below and contact the appropriate office for more information or to reserve a space. When a student is applying for a gallery space in a college other than in the funding college, the student should contact the gallery’s Head of College’s office directly.
