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. If you are an admitted student for Fall 2024, we will have a variety of events specifically for our Class of 2029 students

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.

Orange Previews

On the following dates during the summer months, the University will be hosting Orange Preview open house days: July 19, July 22, and August 2. These open house days are large-scale, amped up versions of the daily visit! Learn more and register here.


Information sessions for prospective students

Sessions last approximately one hour and include information on the educational path of an architect, our BArch program, studio culture, the application process, and portfolio submission. These will be offered several times a month at a variety of times to accommodate various time zones.

Optional Virtual Portfolio Interview

This optional interview is an opportunity for you to meet with our architecture admissions team and provide us with insight as to why you are interested in studying architecture, describe the portfolio work that you chose to include, and your interest in studying at our prestigious institution. This is not a critique of your work.

For more information and to register for a timeslot, visit our Portfolio Requirements page.

Virtual lecture series

Every year, the School of Architecture welcomes a variety of lecturers featuring renowned architects, faculty from various institutions, and other prominent figures. We invite you to join these events to learn more about the field and explore what our current students are experiencing.
