College of Architecture and Design Student Services Office

SPRING 2021: Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, please refer to our College Resource Guide for current operational information. Many of our College resources and services require an advance appointment during this time. If you have any questions, please reach out to the appropriate contact on page 3 of the Resource Guide.

The Student Services Office is not open for in-person visits or advising; however, virtual academic advising continues through Microsoft Teams. Undergraduate students should continue to use Navigate to schedule an advising appointment with their undergraduate academic advisors, Ashlie Contos or Anne Sullivan. These virtual appointments are held via Microsoft Teams. Appointments with Assistant Dean Trang Phan may be scheduled via email.

Welcome! We're here to help current and prospective students with their advising, academic, admissions, scholarship, graduation, and student affairs related questions. We invite you to visit or call us with any inquiries you may have.

Advising and Student Services Mission Statement

The College of Architecture and Design’s Student Services Office is committed to our students and their success. Through the utilization and integration of college and university-wide resources, college academic advisors partner with students, faculty, and university representatives across campus to challenge, empower, and support students to make informed and proactive decisions that will advance their academic, personal, and professional goals. Advising in the College of Architecture and Design is multi-faceted and dynamic. Advisors are engaged with our students and remain or keep abreast of advising issues in order to develop best practices and initiatives that will address challenges and trends that affect our students.
