Institution Information

SARUP is home to two significant international design awards, the Marcus Prize and the Urban Edge Award. Both highlight SARUP’s commitment to Milwaukee and urbanism by bringing international talent into studios. SARUP also offers a unique range of externally funded studios, building long-term relationships with regional industrial and institutional partners. In addition to many community-based projects, SARUP also hosts the Mobile Design Box, an off-campus community engagement space available to SARUP faculty. The Department of Architecture offers BSAS, M. Arch., M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs and faculty are encouraged to teach at all levels. A new 30 credit Master of Urban Design started enrolling students in fall 2021. Located on Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is a city of diverse, walkable and livable neighborhoods. Milwaukee’s lively arts and cultural scene, combined with its Great Lakes and river watershed ecology, historic fabric, and mix of cultures, offers many avenues for research and design inspiration.
