Visitor Information

Planning your visit

Experience creativity and innovation that happens at the University of Houston each day with a visit to the UH Arts district! Throughout the year, enjoy events and exhibits at Blaffer Art Museum, Moores School of Music, UH School of Theatre and Dance, and The Mitchell Center for Performing Arts. Their close proximity to one another offers visitors a complete arts experience in one day, evening or weekend!

Currently, exciting changes are taking place in the arts district, including:

The Grove

UH Arts District - The Grove New landscaping construction in the UH Arts district will soon give way to a welcoming green space, the fine arts Grove. This outdoor oasis, similar to an Italian piazza, will unite all of the UH Arts venues as well as the Valenti School of Communication.

Visitors will enjoy a newly renovated area that is enhanced by increased outdoor gathering space, improved lighting and way-finding signage designed to welcome and direct them throughout the arts district.

The majority of construction for this exciting new space will take place through June 22, 2014, but the show must go on: parking in the arts district will remain free (use campus entrance 16 off Cullen Boulevard), as well as 10 minute ticket-window parking in front of the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts Building (also accessible from entrance 16.) 

All UH Arts venues will allow pedestrian access as the new outdoor space comes to life.

The Alley Theatre at UH

From July 2014 through summer 2015, Houston's Alley Theatre will begin extensive renovations of its facilities, with the grand opening of the new Alley Theatre scheduled for fall 2015. During that time, UH will serve as a temporary home for the Tony Award-winning theater, one of the three oldest resident theatres in the United States. All Alley performances will be staged in UH's 565-seat Wortham Theatre, while UH performances will take place in the adjacent Quintero Theatre.

Alley Theatre patrons will enjoy free parking, performances by the UH School of Theatre and Dance in the Quintero Theater, and many other attractions in the arts district, as well as dining at the nearby UH Hilton.

The Wortham Theater and UH Arts district are conveniently located less than one mile from The Alley Theatre and downtown Houston, and easily accessible. Please click here for directions.
