Open House

There’s no better way to get to know UArts than by exploring our Open House, which will feature live events that give you deeper insight into our creative community. Meet our award-winning faculty, and experience firsthand what life is like as a UArts student. 

Our Open House events have concluded for the season, but you can join us for a student-led virtual or in-person campus visit! Learn about our programs, and explore our Center City Philadelphia neighborhood. Each visit begins with an information session with current students and an admissions counselor. 

Register for a visit.

Note: Effective April 1, we are no longer requiring proof of vaccination against COVID-19 for campus visitors. All visitors must wear a mask that securely covers their nose and mouth at all times while on campus unless actively eating or drinking.

If you are a prospective graduate student, learn more about attending our virtual Graduate Information Session.
