Academic Opportunities

Situated within the resurging Buffalo binational region, University at Buffalo Architecture partners with local industries, firms, governments and an active grassroots movement to test and advance ideas. Such hands-on engagement and critical practice within our local and global communities cultivate core skills for today’s rapidly changing architecture profession. Visit the School of Architecture and Planning website for more information.

Experiential Learning

A learn-by-doing approach to professional education is the crux of our programs in architecture, environmental design, real estate development, and urban planning at the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning. From the studio to the community, students and faculty constantly “do” and “make” through applied research, built works and creative activities. Design inquiry becomes design-build, while design and development concepts become adopted plans for neighborhoods and regions. As a community of makers, we translate knowledge into practice and design the solutions that improve communities and innovate practice. Situated within the resurging Buffalo Niagara binational region, we engage in constant creative dialogue with local industries, firms, designers, planners, governments, and an active grassroots movement. Visit University at Buffalo Architecture’s Learn by Doing webpage for more information. Interested students should contact each research center for more information about available opportunities:

Study Abroad

Extracurricular Activities

University at Buffalo Architecture sponsors a chapter of the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS), as well as the Graduate Students Architecture (GSA), and Alpha Rho Chi (the fraternity of Architecture, the Applied Arts, and Environment Design), and the National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS). These student groups sponsor a variety of events, such as field trips to cities of architectural interest, films and lectures, an annual Beaux-Arts Ball, Lunchtime Lecture Series, GSA Student Exhibit, Graduate Student Reception, exhibits at local galleries, and annual design and building competitions. GSA also supports funding for scholarly publications, grants for thesis work and conference attendance.
