The Residential Life and School-Sponsored Housing Staff includes the Associate Dean of Student Affairs, the Residence Life Coordinator, and three student Resident Assistants. The RLC and RAs live and work in the complex and serve as resources for the students. The staff facilitate events throughout the school year. These events can be social, educational and often a mixture of the two. They are available to answer questions, assist students in their transition to The Art Institute and living on their own, and refer students to valuable campus and community resources. They are also available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by cell phone in the event of an emergency. In addition, Club River Run Leasing Office provides courtesy patrols and maintenance staff.
Residential Life and School-Sponsored Housing rates for each academic year are determined the previous summer. The rate for the 2011-2012 academic year is $2,984 per quarter for a shared bedroom with one other student in a two bedroom unit. The cost of a single occupancy bedroom is $3,600 per quarter. These rates included rent, furniture, water/sewer/trash, gas, reasonable use of electricity, expanded cable service, high-speed internet and on-site staff. Most students bring their own cell phones, but land lines are also available and can be contracted by each apartment at the student's expense.
Reserving a Space

Applications will only be accepted upon admission to The Art Institute of California—San Diego. Reservations are confirmed on a first-come, first-serve basis upon receipt of the application and security deposit. Students who do not receive an immediate reservation will be placed on a waiting list. Students may expect to receive roommate assignments approximately two to three weeks prior to the start of the school quarter.
