Parnassus, the Art Building 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 partnered with Husky Grind, which roasts their coffee on campus and ethically sources their beans from many locations worldwide.
UW Housing & Food Services became the manager of Parnassus in 2011, but half of the profits and all tips still support the Parnassus Endowed Fund, which in turn supports scholarships and graduation awards for School students.
Online Parnassus Gallery
The Online Parnassus Gallery is a virtual space dedicated to exhibiting UW student work.
The Parnassus Art Gallery has been closed along with the rest of the School due to COVID-19 safety guidelines. The Student Voice Project student leadership team transitioned the gallery to a virtual format in response to the temporary loss of the physical space.
Exhibitions will be released on an ongoing basis, so check back often for new work.
If you are interested in showing work in the Online Parnassus Gallery or participating in the gallery leadership team, please email the Gallery.
