WE CAN’T WAIT TO WELCOME YOU TO THE KyCAD CAMPUS

The best way to get to know KyCAD — and how you fit in — is to visit campus. Seeing our studio spaces, lecture rooms and residence halls in person, and meeting with our community of faculty, students and staff, is as important to us as it is to you.

THE BEST TIME TO VISIT KyCAD0330_kycad_02_mh

You’re welcome to visit just about anytime of year. We are closed sometimes (we follow the Spalding University calendar) but we want to meet you and share the KyCAD experience.

Visitors will see the best of KyCAD and Spalding by visiting during the school year. Also of note, students don’t attend classes on Fridays to give them the opportunity to organize and study, so if you’re looking to see classes in session, come Monday-Thursday!

LET US KNOW WHEN YOU’RE COMING

Our Admissions Office wants to know when you’re planning a visit so we can personally welcome you to campus! Our counselors will be able to provide specialized information and directions upon your arrival.

Contact the Admissions Counselors for more information, or schedule a visit to KyCAD using the Campus Visit calendar. If you’re unsure of your counselor, check out our Admissions information, or you’re welcome to contact Caelin Anderson.


Visit Reservations Calendar


Please note: Campus tours are available Monday-Friday. We are closed weekends and holidays.

We welcome conversations about your application and portfolio review. We encourage you to bring copies or digital images of your portfolio to discuss while you’re on campus.

For group visits, please contact admissions@kycad.spalding.edu.

ARE YOU AN ART EDUCATOR WHO WANTS TO VISIT CAMPUS?

We would be delighted to welcome you (and any students you’d like to bring).

KyCAD is committed to sharing a higher education art experience, and as such, we welcome secondary school art teachers and their students to visit campus.

Through a special grant, KyCAD can offer partial reimbursement to high school art educators who take the time to visit our campus, sharing the KyCAD experience with their students. We welcome the conversation with students about a career in the arts.

For more information about this special Campus Visit opportunity, please contact admissions@kycad.spalding.edu.
