VISIT THE UNDERGRADUATE 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 at any time, or virtually explore the UT campus. Visitors may also schedule time for a tour of the School of Architecture's facilities, led by a current student. 

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

At a Prospective Student Information Session, prospective students and families will learn about School of Architecture degree programs, facilities, career services, student support services, internships, and study abroad programs. The one-hour session includes detailed application process information and a time for questions. 

You may register for the School of Architecture Information Session, as well as the UT General Admitted Freshman, Prospective Freshman, or Transfer Session, on the Texas Admissions website. There are separate links to register for an in-person information session and for virtual information sessions. Once on the registration page, please select the college to view dates and register for the School of Architecture Sessions. Parents and family members may also be present to hear the information and ask questions.
