Not sure about the University area, but the Light Factory has a couple of small galleries in Spirit Square (http://www.lightfactory.org). Also may want to check out the Mint Museum (mintmuseum.org) to see what they may have, I don't think they have photography featured now but they do have an exhibit 'Renaissance to Roccoco' with many rare works, Gainsborough, Goya, Caravaggio. May be worth your time...
