Graduate Studio Complex

The MFA Program is housed in a new facility exclusively for graduate art students, providing a cohesive space for the community. It includes: 18 individual studios, each approximately 300 square feet with large windows for ample natural light; common study and community areas, a fully-stocked kitchen; and administrative offices. This facility also includes a 1,200 square foot flexible-use space that supports varied coursework, group critiques, roundtable seminars, public programing, and more.

School of Art Facilities

In addition to the resources of the graduate studio complex, each MFA candidate has access to all the state-of-the-art facilities at the School of Art, including drawing and painting studios, a print media lab, sculpture, wood, and metal shops, a digital fabrication lab, a multimedia studio, and more.


The College of Fine Arts maintains an off-campus space, called Platform, where graduate students have organized group exhibitions, collaborated with Pittsburgh-based artists, and organized community events. Platform includes finished gallery space, as well as a state-of-the-art 4K theater. For the MFA Thesis, third-year students take over all three floors of the Miller Institute for Contemporary Art.
