David R. Ravin School of Architecture

We welcome your interest in studying architecture, urban design, and computational design at the David R. Ravin School of Architecture at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Recognized for the outstanding quality of our faculty and students, our commitment to community, and the 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 – we are devoted to engaging students in an energetic study of how architecture and design shape our daily lives.


“My favorite thing about UNC Charlotte is the extreme levels of diversity and inclusion. I was afraid of fitting into the large campus and community, but as I’ve spent time here, I’ve realized that UNC Charlotte is for everyone, no matter their background. I love the David R. Ravin School of Architecture specifically because they understand that we are humans first and students second – they work hard to include everyone in events and socials that take place.”
