The Student Affairs team serves as a resource in support of all School of Architecture students achieving their academic and professional goals.

In serving the UTSOA community, the Student Affairs staff is committed to providing the coordination and support for a range of student services, programming, and special events. This includes counseling students on academic or professional matters, personal development and support, coordinating student activities, as well as implementing policies and procedures relevant to student life.

As a primary ambition, the Student Affairs Office aims to create an exceptional and respectful learning and living environment for the entirety of the School of Architecture's student body.
