Prospective students are highly encouraged to visit the School and the campus. We offer one-on-one meetings and tours of the School of Architecture building Monday-Friday year-round. To schedule a visit, please contact Gwen Fullenkamp, Graduate Academic Advisor, at gfullenk@uic.edu.

Prospective students are also invited to attend the public events hosted by the School throughout the year, such as the evening lecture series, Spring Portfolio Day, and Year End Show. Each fall, we host a Graduate Open House for prospective students. This provides students the opportunity to see our facilities, meet faculty and students, and attend a portfolio review workshop. For students who may be interested in further building or refining a portfolio for graduate admission, we recommend our 4-week YArch summer program or our fall TryArch workshop.
