The School of Architecture is located in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the Atlantic coast of Canada. The school's primary aim is to educate students who plan to become professional architects. It was established in 1961 and was part of the Technical University of Nova Scotia until 1997, when TUNS amalgamated with Dalhousie University to form a comprehensive university with 16,000 undergraduate and graduate students within a wide range of disciplines.

The central activity at the School of Architecture is architectural design. Students study historical and contemporary buildings in Canada and abroad, and respond through the design of new architectural projects. Architecture is a multi-disciplinary profession, with alliances to the fine arts, the humanities, and technologies. Many undergraduate disciplines provide an effective foundation for architectural studies. Conversely, architectural studies provide an excellent foundation for careers in various design-related fields.
