The School of Architecture at Carnegie Mellon University welcomes undergraduate and graduate program prospective students to engage with us during the academic year while semester coursework is in session. In-person tours, remote information sessions, and online one-on-one appointments via Zoom are available on select weekdays during the fall and spring academic semesters. The prospective student experience is limited in the winter months and in the summer when the undergraduate and graduate programs are not in session.

We respectfully request that visitors do not enter the School of Architecture design studios or facilities outside of an official tour (register below). Please review CMU’s Visitor Protocol guidance prior to scheduling an on-campus visit. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to ensure the health and safety of our community.

We continue to encourage prospective students and families to connect with our community through our online visit opportunities that let you explore Carnegie Mellon’s campus and residence halls, chat with an admission counselor, sit in on an information session, and hear from current students. To complement these remote offerings, the university offers registration for campus visits including an On-Campus Information Session, an In-person Campus Tour, and an Outdoor Campus Walking Route.


During the tour you will be able to observe student and faculty collaboration as you visit the architecture design studios, Shop, and Digital Fabrication (dFAB) lab.

In-person visitation for Spring 2024 has begun. Tours are available on select weekdays in April and May.
