Graduate Visit

VISIT THE GRADUATE PROGRAM

Located near the corner of Guadalupe and 22nd Street, the School of Architecture occupies four buildings on The University of Texas at Austin campus: Goldsmith Hall (GOL), Sutton Hall (SUT), West Mall Building (WMB), and Battle Hall (BTL). 

You are welcome at any time to conduct a self-guided tour of our studio spaces, facilities, and campus, or virtually explore the UT campus. Please notify the Graduate Office in advance. You may also schedule an appointment with the Graduate Admissions Coordinator.

VISITOR PARKING

Metered street parking around the School is possible but is usually very difficult to find during the semester. The closest parking lot to the School is the privately-owned Dobie Mall Parking Garage on Whitis between 20th and 21st. There are also several surface parking lots (approx. $5-$6/day) on Whitis between MLK and 21st. These are all less than a 5-minute walk. The University also has several public parking garages and lots, but these are located farther from the School.

PROSPECTIVE STUDENT INFORMATION SESSIONS

The Graduate Office will host one-hour prospective student information sessions throughout the Fall semester. This is an opportunity for prospective students to ask our staff any admissions questions, meet our faculty, and talk to current students about their experiences in our programs. 

Tuesday, November 71:00 pm (CST)Virtual
Thursday, December 76:00 pm (CST)Virtual

 

GRADUATE OPEN HOUSE

The School of Architecture will host an Open House for admitted graduate students in Spring 2024. More information will be shared as it becomes available.
