Housed in the historic Santa Fe Freight Depot, SCI-Arc is a laboratory for architectural experimentation. During tours of the quarter-mile-long campus, visitors walk through vibrant studios and see students and faculty engaging in collaborative discussions, critiques, pin-ups, and reviews.

Guided Tour

For those interested in learning more about the academic programs offered at SCI-Arc, application process, and curriculum, guided campus tours with admissions counselors take place on Mondays and Fridays at 2:30 pm.

SCI-Arc also offers student-led tours on Wednesdays from 1:00-2:00 pm for those interested in learning more about the SCI-Arc student experience. Student-led tours are limited in dates, out of consideration for the academic calendar.

Both tours are approximately 60 minutes in length, but visitors are advised to allocate 90 minutes for the tour and follow-up questions.

To provide the best experience, we limit the number of people allowed per tour session. To secure a place on the tour, reservations must be made using this form. A confirmation email will be sent containing further details.

Group Tours

Groups larger than five interested in visiting SCI-Arc must contact the Office of Admissions to schedule a time to tour the school. Please contact or 213.356.5320 to make a reservation.

SCI-Arc complies with federal regulations concerning access for physically challenged persons. Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate individual needs.
