Campus Resources

KyCAD provides programs, services, activities and spaces to support its campus community.

Student Support Services

Academic Support services promote holistic undergraduate student success at KyCAD through student-focused programming, success coaching, personalized research assistance, and tutoring. Academic Support services take a proactive approach by creating an inclusive and supportive environment where every student develops confidence, a growth mindset, a strong sense of themselves, and is capable of self-led inquiry. Programming and resources promote the whole student's well-being.

Library Services

The KyCAD Library provides a comprehensive, readily accessible collection of informational materials, instructional technologies, and other academic support services that meet the ever-changing educational needs of students, faculty, and staff. Beyond that, the KyCAD Library offers students a supportive environment, tools, and expertise that nurture and enhance the teaching and learning process for the entire college community.

Disability Services

We strive to provide equal access to all College functions. Students with learning differences/difficulties or physical disability may self-disclose their need for accommodations.

Mental Health Counseling

We prioritize the well-being of students and are focused on creating an environment that promotes health, inclusivity, respect, and compassion. As part of the KyCAD community, students may request mental health and counseling support through our arrangement with Groupworks Psychological Services.

Student Studios

Freshmen are provided with a common working space, storage area and an individual flat file for 2D storage. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors receive individual studio spaces with a work bench, wall space, storage shelf, and an individual flat file for 2D storage. Studios are open to students after hours with on-hand technical support from trained shop technicians and studio monitors.

Workshops + Labs

Workshops, labs, and classrooms surround the studio spaces, reflecting our interdisciplinary approach to artmaking while providing the physical resources needed to explore diverse creative materials and processes. Our digital facilities include computer workstations outfitted with scanners and a variety of printers ranging from large format photo to 3D and a variety of cameras and accessories, projectors, and lighting equipment are available for student checkout.
