Spivak Student Studios


A dedicated creative space on campus

The Spivak Studios are a great opportunity to have a dedicated creative space on campus, exhibit and critique art and design, and connect with peers and visiting artists.


Spivak Studios is a vibrant, active, creative student community in the heart of RMCAD’s campus dedicated to the professional development of students’ art and design practice. The building offers 12 studio spaces to host 24 resident artists and a communal exhibition space where RMCAD students can connect, create, and develop their studio practice in a supportive environment.

Having a Spivak studio is a competitive and prestigious opportunity open to all degree programs and modalities (additional eligibility requirements apply). Studio residencies are granted for one semester at a time (16 weeks) to chosen applicants who meet all eligibility criteria.
