ARC Policies

Access to ARC facilities is by appointment only. Patrons are expected to wear face masks at all times when inside and to disinfect areas of occupancy before leaving with disinfectant wipes provided by the University.

Architecture collections are primarily housed between two locations; The Architecture Research Center (ARC) and The Otto G. Richter Library.

Food & Drink

Food is not allowed anywhere in the Architecture Research Center (ARC).

Drinks must be in a covered container.

Study Room Reservations

Noise & Courtesy

Due to the modest size and intimate nature of the Architecture Research Center (ARC) facility, cell phone use is not permitted anywhere in the library.

Supporting the Architecture Research Center (ARC)

The Architecture Research Center (ARC) welcomes contributions no matter what the amount. Due to space constraints, the University’s architecture collections are housed between two locations, the Otto G. Richter Library and the School of Architecture library. The School’s modestly sized library facility allows students and faculty use of a limited collection in the classroom and studio. Visit the School of Architecture site for more information on giving your support.
