First-Year B.Arch. Supply Kit

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, and for ARCH 1501 Representation I. Students are encouraged to purchase this equipment from the Cornell Store prior to arrival in August. Students who wish to purchase these items elsewhere may do so, but are cautioned to purchase only professional-quality items.

AAP is having a special supplier assemble all but four of these items in kit form. The kit will be delivered to students at Milstein Hall on the first day of studio. The kit can only be purchased in its entirety - with NO deletions and NO substitutions. First-year students have until Friday, July 12 to order their kit online through the Cornell Store. After that time, the kit will not be available for purchase.

The remaining four items (in italics, below) are still required but must be purchased separately from the kit. First-year students have the option of purchasing these three items online or in person at the Cornell Store in August during Move-In/Orientation. If purchased at the Cornell Store, those items will also be delivered to studio on the first day. Purchasing items online may cost less, but students will need to transport online purchases to studio themselves.
