Welcome home, Huskies

We all live in built environments. They’re the places we live, work, gather, and travel. In the College of Built Environments, students and faculty in five comprehensive programs of study – architecture, construction management, landscape architecture, real estate, and urban design and planning – collaborate to answer some of the most pressing questions about how humans shape and interact with nature.

Our diverse programs help students find meaningful work that touches just about every aspect of human life. We’re developing the innovative materials and vibrant communities of the future. And we’re working with an eye towards social and environmental justice. Join us.

Future Leaders: You're right where you belong.

Seattle has been called a state of mind. You can call it home. It’s a place where faculty, students, and alumni work with local communities and beyond to create more beautiful, equitable, and just built environments. It’s an innovative city where opportunities to test your skills abound. You may travel far from Seattle after graduation, but your time here will stay with you forever.

Build Your Future

  • From the Dean: Welcome Back!

    As we usher in another academic year at the College of Built Environments, I want to extend a warm welcome back to all our faculty, staff, and students.

  • Interested in serving as a mentor?

    You can work one-on-one with a College of Built Environments student and help them grow professionally through career exploration, networking, and professional skill-building by signing up for our mentor program. This is an excellent opportunity to support the built environments community by sharing your advice and professional experience.
