School of Architecture Department Tours

If you cannot make the Graduate Open House and would like to visit the School of Architecture, please contact us at at least three days before your intended visit.


Department Tours include meetings with a Graduate Admissions staff member, Program Director, and a facilities tour led by a Student Ambassador.  Scheduled campus visits are dependent on the availability of the Program Director for your intended program(s) of study.  Most departmental visits last about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. 


Please make sure that you schedule a visit as we may not be able to accommodate every walk-in prospective student.


During the months of January to March, department tour appointments may be limited as the faculty will be reviewing applications.
