Our welcoming interfaith community of 2000 students attracts young men and women from across the country and around the globe who seek the knowledge and the skills to make a difference in our ever-changing world. Within a values and faith base, we offer you an array of perspectives and broad exposure to our truly global society. The University comprises the undergraduate college, the graduate school, and the theological seminary.


Opening May 2013, this facility is central to the University of Dubuque campus, and provides a multitude of venues to serve students, faculty, staff, and the public. Art by Osmosis is the overarching theme of the new building, inviting people of all walks to happen upon Art in its myriad forms, intentionally and accidentally, as they visit the center for their work, study, recreation, and entertainment.

The primary functions of the building can be categorized as a casual student campus center and formal public areas, with overlaps of each meant to encourage interaction and interest. The student areas are designed to provide educational spaces, group and individual study settings, student services, offices, and hospitality; the public areas provide performance venues, associated gathering spaces, gallery space, heritage display, offices, and hospitality.

Public spaces include a 1000-seat Main Hall and lobby; a 200-seat black box theater and auditorium space; an art gallery; and all the requisite support. The Main Hall is designed to serve as the premier performance hall for campus, local, regional and national troupes in music, dance, public speaking, and drama, while at the same time providing first-class instructional facilities for the burgeoning theater and performing arts programs at UD. The Main Hall is also designed to accommodate important campus functions such as convocations, baccalaureates, and festival worship services.
