Over the years, it has accumulated resources; continuously played the role of promoting arts and culture on campus; and adhered to the concept of combining tradition and modernity, refinement, and popularity. Moreover, it has provided aesthetic life experience on campus by various means, stimulated cross-field creative potential, enhanced appreciation of the humanities among teachers and students, and strengthened the soft power of Yang Ming Chiao Tung University by planning Arts Center Programs and holding literature and photography award events.
The Chiao Tung campus has two well-equipped exhibition and performance venues, the Music Performance Hall and the Gallery. The Music Performance Hall is located on the Floors 2 and 3 of the Student Activity Center and can accommodate 232 people. It is equipped with two Steinway 274 grand pianos and professional lighting and sound equipment. In addition to accommodating drama and dance performances, it is also an ideal place for chamber music performance. The Gallery is located on Floor B1 of the Hao Ran Library and is a space elaborately designed by a professional architectural team. The duplex large-scale light-wall staircase in the middle of the building is unique and beautifully designed. The wooden floor, together with the various wall space and lighting configurations, creates a simple and modern high-quality gallery space, which can bring the best of artworks.
The Yang Ming campus has a multifunctional space, the Art Space. It is located in the front hallway of the Zhi Xing Building and is a key area for students to study and live.
