The food in the dining halls are not that good. And also the eating utensils aren't clean.

Other than staff at the University of the Arts, the students aren't that friendly to new students.

I received a decent amount of financial aid but not as much as I was originally hoping. The advisors in the financial aid department however are helpful in showing you where to go to find more aid on your own and when needed where and how to take out loans.

Compared to a lot of other art colleges and universities nearby the University of the Arts has a lot of majors to choose from which helps you better study to reach your career goal. You don’t have to choose your major until after the first year so that you have time to explore and could always switch later if you changed your mind. Once you do pick what major you want to study the classes are tailored to fit your needs as an individual as well so there are a lot of options.

The university of the Arts has a cafeteria in each building, a large library for use, several computer labs, print labs, studio rooms and up to date technology for the students to utilize. All these really help aid in getting the most out of your time on campus. There are some couches and lounge rooms scattered about but mostly the students will hang out in the studios or in the cafe’.

The campus buildings are conveniently located by a large train station, bus stops and subway entrances. Since it is located in a busy area of center city there are plenty of options for public transportation. There is even a parking garage on broad street available.

The school does not have a specific lot. However, UArts, being in the city it is very easy to find parking either in a lot (there are plenty nearby) or metered parking on the street. Depending on ones financial situation, parking can be found for almost every budget.
Students usually do not drive. There are busses and subways, and we mostly walk everywhere.

The computer labs are highly available with long hours and 2 large labs both with printing units. However, the labs are not open on weekends with can be inconvenient and the printers can sometimes glitch up. Theres always people working there to help though. Personal computers and printers are diffinately great to have. I survived without a printer, so it is possible. There is also a very up to date imaging lab where photographers or graphic designers can print larger prints in a good quality.

UArts is so beautifully diverse in it's student population. Between ethnicity there is a range of Americans with different races as well as a large group of international students from Korea, and parts of Europe. We also are loving and encouraging of all forms of sexual orientation as well as religious beliefs. We are an art school after all!

Stipends are offered and the experience is invaluable. Competitive positions are offered within various cultural institutions within the city.

I'm exceedingly pleased with my decision to attend UArts. The program is like a family, and I know I will continue to be supported throughout my future endeavors.

The Book Arts/Printmaking Degree program is one of the best and most prestigious programs of its kind in the country. Stellar faculty and courses have been the highlight of attending this program.

The program director was absolutely key in the process, and provided invaluable support during the whole application. The faculty and staff were also available for questions and guidance.

This is a small group and I get a great hands on experience. Also the structure of the classes allows for a lot of real world experience and the chance to have a job in your field during school.

The availability to learn a variety if techniques and disciplines is extraordinary. Despite having an assigned degree all students are allowed to participate in workshops of different techniques.

The combining of two buildings built about a hundred years apart does occasionally cause some problems. However the heating is better in my part if the building. (The older side)

The restaurants are about a five minute walk from campus. There is a good selection but it can get quite crowded so studying while eating isn't an option.

There are no sports for the school, since it is a small arts school.

Downtown Philadelphia is a fast moving interesting part of the popular city to say the least. From the gigantic buildings, historic landmarks, and interesting characters portraying as residence, there is never a dull moment. Even with corner to corner eccentricity there is not a lack of business decorum when serious minds go to work. From particular to affluent, business to muse you will find it here in the whimsical downtown Philadelphia. So cool!

This is art school. Really. That is all we have. I grew up doing sports so I'm not proud of the fact that I'm at a school without any sports. We have intramural dodgeball and basketball between the dorms but it's just for fun and no one goes and watches.

I'm a dance majors with UArts and I think it's great. We have the largest program of male dancers which our director (D Faye) prides herself on. The dance teachers don't give homework other then 'hey remember this combination'. If you have a problem you can go to a teacher, your advisor, or even D Faye. Getting work study is hard though because if you're a Freshman they want upper classmen, and you have to work times around your rehearsals.

As a dance major I had to cycle between various teachers. I had 8 ballet instructors and 6 modern/jazz/hiphop instructors. They were all great and helpful. Registration for the second semester was hard though for some. For myself, I easily logged on at 8am on a Wednesday and signed up. Others though were slotted to log in at about 3pm on Wednesday, when all of the classes for electives were taken.

I enjoyed living in the dorms as a freshman. The order of best to worst dorm would have to be: Juniper, Furness, Spruce, Pine. Juniper is the newest building so it is the nicest. Furness is older but it's attached to Hamilton Hall and has a living room and kitchen which Spruce does not. Spruce is just small but it is a clean building. Pine has small elevators, a wooden stair case for the fire escape, and just isn't great.

The computer labs are great. Open 24/hrs and filled with new Apple computers. The techs they have are always willing to help you with any problems you're having with your laptop or the computers in the lab.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
