Weekday Visits

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.


Graduate Reviews

Prospective students are welcome to observe our graduate students' midterm and final reviews. Midterm reviews typically occur in October and March, and final reviews in December and May. Please contact Gwen Fullenkamp if you'd like further information about these.


Special Events and Workshops

Prospective students are also encouraged to attend public events hosted by the School throughout the year. These include events such as our evening lecture series, fall Graduate Open House, spring Portfolio Day, and Year End Show. 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.


Virtual Information Sessions

If you can't make it to campus, consider attending a Virtual Information Session. These are one-hour, online sessions hosted by the Graduate Academic Advisor in which prospective students can learn more about the approach and curriculum of the School, the admissions process, and the kinds of work and activities graduate students are engaging with.
Virtual info sessions for 2019 have ended. Check back in 2020 for additional sessions.
