Architectural education is unlike any type of education you’ve likely encountered to date. We highly encourage you to attend one of our architecture-specific information sessions online or in-person.

In-person Campus visits

General Weekday Campus Visits

The School of Architecture offers in-person, architecture-specific information sessions on Mondays and Fridays at 11:00am ET. These sessions provide a general overview of our program and a walking tour of our facilities.

We encourage you to attend the architecture session as part of the full “Campus Visit” with the Office of Admissions at Syracuse University. For more information and to register click here. When you register, you’ll have the option to select a school or college information session. Our available 11:00 a.m. sessions will be listed at the bottom of the form. 

Architectural education is unlike any type of education you’ve likely experienced to date. The design studio sequence is at the core of our program. We highly recommend you meet us when studios are in session to learn more about life at SU and the architecture studio experience. 

For this reason, we do not participate in Syracuse Saturdays. If you choose to visit on a Saturday, or if you take a self-guided tour, we strongly encourage you to attend an online information session and learn about our program and the portfolio requirements.
