The University Theatre boasts a state-of-the-art proscenium theatre with seating for 425. It is one of only three theatres in the province with a fly tower, which offers endless production possibilities.
Adjacent to the main stage, the Shumiatcher Open Stage provides a more intimate venue for 165. The "Shu Box" is specially designed for a variety of performance configurations, from theatre-in-the-round to more traditional stage productions.
Both are teaching theatres and feature flexible stage and seating layouts and computerized sound and lighting boards.
As well as being used by the Faculty for classes, student recitals, guest lecturers and performers, the greater University community makes use of the theatres for conferences, lectures and awards ceremonies. Community organizations book the theatres regularly for dance, theatre, and music performances and competitions.
Both facilities are wheelchair accessible, have fully equipped box office and a spacious lobby for post-show receptions. Additionally, heated, underground parking is available.

The Visual Resource Centre has a collection of over 100,000 slides pertaining to the Visual and Performing Arts. There is also a small but growing collection of videos and CDs relating to the Visual Arts and Theatre.
The Visual Resource Centre is available to the faculty of the University of Regina, including its Federated Colleges and the Mackenzie Art Gallery. Students of the Faculty of Fine Arts have limited access to the collection for the purposes of projects, essays, and visual references assigned by a faculty member. Off-campus users may be allowed access to the collection under special circumstances.
The Fifth Parallel Gallery, located in the Riddell Centre, is operated entirely by Visual Arts students, and offers regular exhibitions of work produced by undergraduate and graduate students from the various disciplines within Visual Arts.
