First-Year B.Arch. Supply Kit

UPDATED FOR FALL 2020

The following is a list of basic equipment and supplies that represent the minimum required for the first-year design class ARCH 1101 Design I, ARCH 1501 Representation I, and ARCH 1611 Environmental Systems I. If students intend to participate in studion on-campus in Ithaca, they are encouraged to purchase this equipment from the Cornell Store prior to arrival in August. Students who live within the United States may choose to purchase these supplies from the Cornell Store and have them shipped, or may find alternative vendors. Students who plan to participate in studio from abroad should plan to purchase their materials online and have them shipped directly to them, due to cost and timing restrictions.

Most of these items will be available for purchase from the Cornell Store. A few items are not available from our vendors, and therefore must be purchased by each student separately - these items are indicated in bold italics, below. Instructions for ordering the items that the Cornell Store will have in stock will be provided shortly.
