Visits, tours and portfolio reviews

Find out what it means to study in a design school with an entrepreneurial mindset

There are many ways you can learn about SAPL and what the school offers.

SAPL Information Sessions, Open Houses and Webinars

Chat with students, professors and administrators and connect with them. Learn about what architects, planners and landscape architects do, and the impact they have on building a better, socially-conscious future. Ask about what makes our programs stand out: block courses, international study abroad programs, the student experience, and see for yourself what students are exhibiting in our galleries.

Register for the SAPL information session on November 21 at 12:30pm MST >>


SAPL Portfolio Sessions

Review your in-progress portfolio with a professor and get feedback on your application portfolio before submission. 

(November 21 portfolio review sessions are now full.)

Your Success Matters

It takes more than books and buildings to deliver a world-class education. Who you learn from matters. We are privileged to have energetic, distinguished program faculty who are passionate about shaping the next generation of leaders in environmental design. They are teachers who practice, and practitioners who teach. 

Students benefit from small class-size ratios and the opportunity to connect with future employers in the classroom as well as in the wider world. Our real-life studios give you the chance to help develop real solutions to real-world problems while building your portfolio. Workshop and fabrication labs foster a hands-on culture of makers and doers, allowing you to put theory into practice and preparing you to meet the expectations of today’s employers. 

Chat with us, visit our spaces, and learn about how you can work with industry leaders.
