Welcome to the School of Architecture

SoA's 50th anniversary logo

The 2021-22 academic year marks the 50th anniversary of the first architecture students' matriculation at UNC Charlotte in Fall 1971. Today, the School of Architecture serves more than 300 students in five degree programs, and our roughly 2,500 architecture alumni now span five generations. Collectively, our graduates have contributed a half-century of positive influence on architecture and related disciplines. Let's celebrate! 


Welcome to Soa!

We welcome your interest in studying architecture, urban design, and computational design at the School of Architecture (SoA) at the University of North Carolina – Charlotte. We are devoted to engaging students in an energetic study of how architecture and design affects - and stimulates - our daily lives.

The School of Architecture is recognized for the outstanding quality of our faculty and students, our commitment to outreach and community involvement, and the quality and extent of resources offered through our labs, studios, and classrooms – both at UNC Charlotte's main campus and The Dubois Center at UNC Charlotte Center City in Uptown Charlotte.
