Construction Notice: Due to the Garfield Avenue Project, the footbridge that connects Art & Design with the rest of campus will be closed during the summer. Please plan extra time if you intend to tour the entire campus or have a meeting at another academic building.
UW-Eau Claire offers a beautiful campus next to the scenic Chippewa River in the heart of downtown Eau Claire. Prospective students and their families are invited to visit the campus for a scheduled tour to learn more about what our university has to offer.
After completing a broad-spectrum tour, you are invited to visit the Art & Design Department to experience our friendly and diverse atmosphere. When scheduling a visit, be sure to check out the Foster Gallery to view the current exhibit. Depending on arrangements, class observations can also be scheduled to see students in action in our studio courses.
We ask that you please make plans with our department at least two weeks in advance via email. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee accommodations for walk-ins. You will be put in touch with an area faculty or staff member (who maintain their own schedules), and appointments will be arranged by the individual.
Summer 2017 Department Hours*
Tuesdays thru Thursdays | 8:00-4:00
* We are not available on weekends. Also be aware that during the summer, visits will consist of a generic tour of the facilities and a broad overview of the programs. Instructional faculty and staff are not available to discuss specific emphasis areas or answer questions beyond education at UWEC.
