New Graduate Students

Congratulations on your offer of admission to the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design!

As a new student, you will join the Daniels Faculty’s prominent community of students, scholars, and art and design professionals, whose research, interdisciplinary collaboration, critical inquiry, and creativity play key roles in the development of more beautiful, ecologically-sound, and socially-enriching environments. We look forward to welcoming you to become a part of this dynamic group.

Accessibility Services will be offering Moving Forward: Summer Transition Series from May-September, 2021. Moving Forward is a transition program geared towards incoming students who identify as living with a disability. Sessions will include an introduction to Accessibility Services, key learning strategies, a mock lecture with an instructor (to practice those strategies!), and highlights to other services and supports both within our office and across campus. See here for details and dates.
