With a 450-seat theater at its core, the gabled structure features sky-lit studio classrooms for painting and sculpting as well as studios for ceramics, dance, and photography. The Foundation Art Gallery exhibits works by students, faculty, and members of the community. The Office of Community Engagement brings full-scale dramas and musicals as well as live concerts to the campus.

Opened in 2007, the Professional Academic Center (PAC) completes the campus quadrangle. A workforce development-related facility, the PAC is home to Workforce New York and the New York State Department of Labor. The two-story structure offers breathtaking views, the Alumni Gallery, seminar rooms, and the Saland Forum named in honor of New York State Senator Stephen Saland.
