The Clairmont Center was completed in 1992 and named after a Bismarck leader in construction and land development, Bill Clairmont and his wife Pat. Bill and Pat have served on University boards and supported its growth over the years. The two-story Clairmont Center brings linkage to the Harold J. Miller Center, the Casey Center, and Arno Gustin Hall. It was constructed to develop, promote and preserve cultural riches as expressed through the arts and includes a chapel, an art gallery, music teaching studios, practice rooms, rehearsal space, a recital hall, general classrooms, a language lab, and offices.
R. M. Heskett Hall, a recital and lecture hall with 164 seats, is named in tribute to the Rolland McCartney (R. M.) and Mary Glynn Heskett family and MDU Resources. R. M. Heskett was founder of Minnesota Northern Power Company and later consolidated its subsidiaries into one operating utility called Montana-Dakota Utilities Company. His vision of service was not one of confinement to a single community, but to the larger territory. David Heskett, son of R. M. Heskett, moved the company from Minneapolis to Bismarck in 1968. As a citizen of Bismarck, David Heskett was a supporter of the University of Mary and the Benedictine Sisters of Annunciation Monastery. Music faculty and student recitals, various guest artist music performances, larger classes, meetings, and group presentations are held in Heskett Hall.
Benet Chapel, which includes a Blessed Sacrament Chapel, accommodates about 100 for campus worship services, silent reflection and meditation.

Campus Ministry "Fire Pit" provides a casual student gathering and planning space for campus ministry activities and events.
