Our home on campus, Shattuck Hall, accommodates all of the School's facilities, including the shared, open-plan third-floor studio space. As a student, you earn the privilege of working in this space by respecting a common Code of Conduct. As in all schools of architecture the studio environment is unique to the learning processes of design and creation. Each student has an individual work desk, lockable cabinet and stool for the duration of the term, as well as a responsibility to maintain the cleanliness and security of the studio space.
A resource room is provided for student group meetings, beverage and snack preparation and taking breaks from studio. It is equipped with a large refrigerator, microwave and sink.
