Admission News and Events

Tour of Year End Show Work:
If you weren't able to attend our Year End Show, you can visit campus during the first part of the summer to get a tour of the graduate Year End Show work on display in the building.

Summer School of Architecture Visits:
Although our students are not on campus during the summer, it can be a great time to visit.

The application for YArch 2018 is now open. We recommend YArch for any prospective graduate students who don't have an architecture background.
