During the program, students gain an interdisciplinary view of the fields within the College of Art and Architecture while developing basic design skills and portfolio materials. The week-long schedule is built around daily design studios that expose students to many facets of design and are supplemented with design challenges, workshops, lectures and recreation time as well.
See our program schedule for the week.

Summer Design Week participants will enjoy most meals at Bob’s Place, the main dining hall on the University of Idaho Campus. Bob's offers meals from morning until night, with an all-you-care-to-eat format and serves Aspretto coffee. They offer a wide range of options, from classic comfort foods to freshly sautéed international offerings.

While we share your affection for animals, Summer Design Week is not a place where they can receive the love and attention they need—you will be busy!
Not to worry. Our dining staff will be happy to accommodate your dietary needs. Just make sure you note it when you register.
The University of Idaho is surrounded by the rolling Palouse hills, an area so beautiful it was featured in National Geographic magazine. Just minutes away from the forests, rivers and lakes of Northern Idaho, Moscow is home to more than 24,000 residents and a wide range of student-minded businesses, such as you would only find in a university town. In fact, Men’s Journal named this “hip little city” one of the nation’s five best places to live among college towns. Art galleries, movie theaters, coffee shops and restaurants line the streets. In addition to popular drive-thrus, Moscow offers a huge food co-op with organic and natural foods, Northwest-style pubs, as well as locally owned Italian, French, Mexican and Chinese eateries.
“In addition to Moscow’s fine business and educational reputation, the city’s arts community has gained national attention. The Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival, Festival Dance, Idaho Repertory Theatre, Renaissance Fair, Rendezvous in the Park, and the Prichard Art Gallery are reasons why Moscow is known as the “Heart of the Arts.” Moscow has also been rated one of the “Best 100 Small Art Towns in America."” (Excerpt from the State of Idaho Department of Commerce website)
