The Architecture Library is a satellite of the University library system. The collection includes books, journals, digital and video materials, as well as slides. In addition, it houses the Sol Cohen, Architect archives. A small portion of the Architecture book collection is available at the William R. and Norma B. Harvey Library.

The Architecture Department Model Shop is located in the Armstrong-Slater building, adjacent to Bemis Labs. The tools available for use include a laser cutter along side traditional power and hand tools. The Department of Architecture shares additional computer lab facilities, located at Olin Hall, with other School of Engineering and Technology departments.

The Department of Architecture requires incoming second year students to supply their own laptop and software. Students are encouraged to make computing an integral part of their educational and professional experience.
