Facilities / Parnassus


Parnassus, the School of Art + Art History + Design coffee shop, was established in 1951 by students, for students. The shop offers hot and cold espresso drinks, soft drinks, juices, and a wide variety of soups, salads, and sandwiches.

Parnassus is now partnered with Husky Grind, another campus coffee shop that roasts their coffee on campus and ethically sources their beans from many locations worldwide. With this new partnership, Parnassus will now offer original espresso blends!
