Focused on built, social and cultural landscapes at all scales, we work to establish the conditions for architects and planners to create more equitable, sustainable and well-designed environments. Our school is the only school of architecture and planning within the 64-campus State University of New York (SUNY) system. We invite you to learn more about the life and programs of the school.

A professional school within a major public research university, the School of Architecture and Planning advances the study and practice of our disciplines through experiential learning and research. 


Here in Buffalo, design inquiry becomes design-build while planning concepts become adopted plans for neighborhoods and regions.


As a center for world-class design with lively urban neighborhoods, Buffalo offers the aspiring architect or planner an ideal setting for living and learning.

Whether testing ideas in Buffalo or engaging the built landscape of Barcelona, the School of Architecture and Planning offers a global academic experience.

Research and creative practice are not just platforms but the basis for our academic programs in architecture and planning.
