About Us

A premier event facility


Since 1971, the Dalhousie Arts Centre has been a key feature in Nova Scotia’s  arts and culture landscape. The Dalhousie Arts Centre is home to the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, which regularly features performances by local talent as well as world-famous national and international entertainers.

The centrally-located Arts Centre also offers venues for meetings, seminars, trade shows, weddings, and a variety of other events.

Dalhousie University is located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq. We are all Treaty people.

The production of events is subject to the policies of Dalhousie University, as well as the government of Nova Scotia’s COVID-19 public health and safety guidelines, which are subject to change. Please continue to check our Venue Information page leading up to your event for information on any COVID-19 self-assessments, contact tracing requirements, event-specific details, and any other policies in place at the time that will be important to consider before arrival.
