Student Housing Accommodations

The primary residence hall is located at 1346 Chestnut Street in the heart of Center City Philadelphia. This high rise apartment building accommodates up to 660 students. All first-year students live in this apartment building.  Our second residence hall is located at 1530 Chestnut Street and is traditionally used for second-year students. Both facilities are within three blocks of the main academic building on campus.

Individual apartments are same-sex while the floors are co-educational. All residence halls have 24-hour security and on-call Residence Life Staff.

Students who live on campus do not pay monthly utility or electric bills—that’s all included in the quarterly cost for housing. Cable TV is included in the 1346 Chestnut Building. Students are responsible for their own cable in 1530 Chestnut and Internet in both buildings.

All Ai Philadelphia Residence Life facilities are exclusively apartment style. This means, private bathrooms and full-sized kitchens! Apartments range from two to three bedroom units and accommodate between two—six students. Apartment furnishings include beds, dressers, desks and living room furniture.

Housing tours can be scheduled directly through your Admissions Representative by calling 1.800.275.2474.

Notice Concerning Parking
The Art Institute of Philadelphia does not provide parking to students and thus recommends that students not bring automobiles to school. Any students wishing to bring a car must make arrangements on their own with local garages.
