The Architecture Program at the University of Idaho has earned a widespread reputation for producing exceptional architects. Graduates of our program are uniquely equipped to tackle the most challenging design problems facing the built environment today, emphasizing sustainable and community-focused solutions that influence everyday experiences.

In addition to our main campus in Moscow, our program offers two Boise locations that provide graduate students with opportunities to study contemporary urban issues (Urban Design Center) and/or pursue research in day-lighting and high-performance buildings (Integrated Design Lab).
