Waterloo Architecture Open House

November 25, 10am – 4:00pm

The School of Architecture invites all interested students, along with their parents and friends to join us on our satellite campus 7 Melville Street, S, in Cambridge on Saturday, November 25th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

This is a great opportunity to see the Architecture campus, speak to professors and current students and tour the facilities. Guests will also see demonstrations, displays of student work and successful admission portfolios.

All seats in our formal information sessions have been fully booked. We apologize for this inconvenience. We encourage you to still come to the event as there will be lots to do here including fabrication lab demonstrations, displays of student work and self-guided tours of the building that provide lots of opportunity to interact with current students. The third-floor loft will have portfolios on display and there will be faculty members and current students there to chat about portfolio requirements. 

We will be hosting a Webinar on Tuesday, November 28, 2023 at 7pm which will provide the same information as the Open House sessions. Please Register for the Webinar here:

The webinar will be recorded and posted on our website for future reference and for anyone who can’t attend.

We are also offering semi-private tours of the Cambridge campus on Thursdays, which you can book here:

If you have specific questions regarding admissions, please email

We hope to see you on November 25th at the School of Architecture and online for the Webinar on November 28th at 7pm.
