The Lawton Gallery, located adjacent to the theater in Theater Hall, is free and open to the public, and indeed is one of the few free public art venues in the region. The gallery mounts six to eight exhibits each year, including shows by UW-Green Bay faculty and students. The gallery has a role in the Art academic program, both through its exhibits and through classes that offer gallery management experience to students.
The Shorewood is a nine-hole golf course with rolling and wooded terrain and it was recently voted a top 50 fun place to play in Wisconsin by the authors of "Golf Wisconsin". A challenge for some because of the narrow fairways. Not up for a round, just stop by for the delicious sandwiches at the club house, a faculty and staff favorite.

The space also accommodates music events, recitals, and the annual Danceworks concerts. Tickets for these events can be purchased through University Ticketing Services.
