Architectural education is unlike any type of education you’ve likely encountered to date. We highly recommend that you visit Syracuse University and the School of Architecture to get a snapshot of the types of students and studio experience you would encounter here as an architecture student. Visiting our studios while school is in session is immensely valuable in the decision to apply and enroll in such a program. To visit the school during studio days, we recommend you schedule your visit on a Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday.

Ways to meet us
