SASD is now part of Paier College

As of Thursday, 1 July 2021, SASD and its programs are part of Paier College, as Paier completed their acquisition of the west end of the UB campus (Arnold Bernhard Center (ABC), Cooper Hall, and other properties). The move of Paier to Bridgeport sees a new era in design i Fiarfield County. With the addition of Paier’s existing programs in fine arts, photography, and illustration, among others, there is a new option for design- and art-minded students looking for a nearby school for bachelors degrees in design and the arts.
We all look forward to this new phase in the growth of design education in Bridgeport.

URLs that point to are internal to this site; those that point to alone are no longer pertinent. All admissions inquiries, for example, should be directed to
