O'More College of Architecture & Design

The O'More College of Architecture and Design houses state-of-the-art design spaces that all three departments utilize to help students become the best architects and designers they can be.

Hitch Studios

More than 22,000 square feet in Hitch Hall, the former science building, was transformed into a state-of-the-art design school by O’More College faculty who provided all aspects of the design, finishes, and furniture selection for the new space. Each department has its own floor with studio spaces to accommodate our students' needs.

Within these spaces, students have access to cutting-edge equipment such as 3D printers, laser cutter, high-speed plotters, EFI/Optitex computerized pattern-drafting and 3D virtual fit software and hardware, and industry-standard manufacturing equipment. Our experienced faculty and well-equipped facilities help foster an environment where students are offered numerous opportunities to explore their creative talents.
