At the College of Architecture and the Built Environment, students benefit from a location that serves as a living laboratory, surrounded by thriving design and construction industries.

The East Falls campus is located just 10 minutes by car from Philadelphia’s city center and its bustling offerings. From stellar museums to industrial spaces transformed into artist studios, this environment serves as an urban lab when students aren’t on campus grounds partaking in a cutting-edge architecture and design education, from bachelor’s to PhD level.

For students eager to explore further, they can head to neighboring cities such as New York, Baltimore, Washington, Virginia Beach, and more. More doors to a broad range of real-world projects and networking opportunities await.

A location that opens doors

College of Architecture and the Built Environment dean Barbara Klinkhammer.

“At Jefferson, we are committed to providing a forward-thinking education that is resulting in our students and faculty winning numerous regional, national and international awards. Most recently, our students have been awarded in a number of design competitions: American Society of Landscape Architects’ (ASLA) student competition, IIDA Awards, IDEC Awards, DOE Race to Zero Competition, John Stewardson Memorial Fellowship in Architecture and more,”

Jefferson boasts strategic partnerships with major corporations, professional architecture and engineering firms, local communities and non-profit organizations. Through these, students gain valuable professional experiences long before entering the workforce — a perk that nurtures preparedness and develops agility.

This combination of cutting-edge education, professional preparation and a thriving location — known as the “Jefferson advantage” — makes the College of Architecture and the Built Environment the best pick for students looking to create an equitable and sustainable future through design and construction.
