About La Salle University
Often considered one of Philadelphia’s best-kept secrets, the La Salle University Art Museum is the only university museum in the Philadelphia area to own a permanent display of paintings, drawings, and sculptures from the Renaissance to the present. Located on the lower level of Olney Hall and visited by more than 7000 people last year, the collection features works by artists such as Henry Ossawa Tanner, Charles Willson Peale, Pablo Picasso, Thomas Eakins, and Tintoretto.
The Peale House
Designated a national historic landmark, The Peale House was built in 1755, and is one of the oldest buildings still in use on a college campus in the United States. Once part of the Belfield Estate, which has a storied history dating back to the late 17th century, The Peale House was purchased by La Salle University in 1986, and currently houses the President’s Office. During the early 19th century, Charles Willson Peale, who was one of the most prominent portrait painters during Colonial America, resided in the house, which was then called “Belfield Mansion.” The studio where Peale produced much of his work during his Belfield years is now the President’s reception room.
Blue and Gold Dining Commons
One of the newest spaces on La Salle’s campus is the newly-renovated Blue and Gold Dining Commons, located on Olney Avenue in the North Halls residence complex. The Commons, which includes a 10,000 square foot space and POD Market, was designed to look contemporary and sleek, while incorporating the latest trends in dining space, such as high-top tables, booths, and community tables that accommodate large groups.
Holroyd Hall, featuring the Hugh and Nancy Devlin Science and Technology Center, is La Salle’s latest academic building. After a massive renovation and expansion of the existing Holroyd Hall, the new state-of-the art facility opened in 2009, and currently houses the University’s science and technology classrooms and laboratories.
The University’s main campus is situated on 133 park-like acres in Northwest Philadelphia, six miles from the cultural, historic, and social attractions of Center City.
