University of Nevada, Reno Opens New University Arts Building

The University of Nevada, Reno and the School of the Arts are expanding their roles and footprint on campus and in the community. The new three-story, 42,500-square-foot, $35.5-million University Arts Building will enhance the quality of music and art programs with new spaces that will inspire creativity and artistic excellence. A new 287-seat recital hall, art museum, fabrication lab, multiple rehearsal and practice rooms, and teaching studios will support students and staff in producing their best work.

The building will amplify the role of the arts within the community, while at the same time increase the public’s accessibility to world-class performances and exhibitions. Continued growth in students and the addition and expansion of arts programs has led to the need for the new facility.

The building had its grand opening in February.
