With approximately 250 graduate students, the department is housed at Meyerson Hall, in the heart of the University of Pennsylvania campus, at the corner of Walnut Street and 34th Street. In addition to design studios, exhibition spaces, classrooms and offices, this facility includes state of the art laboratories for computing and fabrication, and two advanced research labs: the Digital Design Research Lab and the Building Simulation Group.
The professional program in Architecture offers a number of study abroad options, currently including a semester abroad in London as well as summer abroad programs in Paris and Tokyo. It enjoys collaborative relationships with other disciplines of the School of Design — historic preservation, landscape architecture, city planning and fine art and offers dual degrees and certificates in many of these allied fields. Students are eligible for a range of scholarships including travel scholarships.
