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.

The program is centered at University of Idaho’s  main campus in Moscow, but also maintains facilities in Boise: The Boise Urban Design Center (UDC) provides graduate students with opportunities to study contemporary urban issues; and the Integrated Design Lab (IDL) affords students possibilities to pursue in-depth research in high-performance buildings.
