Meet with an advisor
Schedule a one-on-one virtual meeting with the Graduate Academic Advisor to ask questions about graduate admissions, degree programs, and more.
Virtual Information Sessions
If you'd like to learn more, 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. View upcoming sessions.
Tour the School of Architecture
In-person visits to the school are currently available on a case-by-case with all UIC COVID-19 protocols enforced for visiting students. Contact Gwen Fullenkamp if you're interested in visiting.
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. 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.
