The sculpture program is situated in a two-story facility just outside the Kresge Art Center. The annex includes private undergraduate/graduate studios, general work area, metals shop, walk-in plastics and paint spray room, critique and installation gallery, modeling and plaster room, and ceramic shell room and wax room. Enabling students to explore a wide range of processes, the facility is equipped with a state of the art ventilation system. Technical support is available on a regular basis.

The main Kresge Art Center building also includes a well-equipped foundry with a programmable burnout kiln, one-ton bridge crane, and a large courtyard and outdoor work area are adjacent to the facilities.
