What do Housing Costs Include?

The current housing rate is $2928 per quarter. Students entering into School Sponsored Housing will sign a license agreement for three quarters (approximately nine months). The cost of School-Sponsored Housing includes basic utilities, furniture rental, and 24-hour staff support, and activities provided by School Sponsored Housing. Telephone, Internet, and television connections are the responsibility of students.

To apply for housing, click on the link below and fill in all of the fields. You will be able to pay the $300 deposit by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, or check.

Housing Application 

To reserve a space in School-Sponsored Housing, a housing application and security deposit must be on file with School Sponsored Housing. School Sponsored Housing will guarantee a space in housing up to one month prior to the first day of classes. Students who send in their application and deposit less than one month prior to the beginning of classes could be placed on a waiting list, and assignments will be made as space is available, on a first-come, first-served basis, in order of receipt of application and deposit. Housing applications and deposits may be submitted up to one year prior to the anticipated start date; however, housing applications cannot be considered until a student has been admitted as a student to the school.

TThe reservation deposit of $300 is kept on file as a security/damage deposit once a student moves into School-Sponsored Housing. The deposit is refundable minus cleaning/damage charges when a student vacates School-Sponsored Housing. If any damages or excess cleaning needs to be done while the student is residing in School-Sponsored Housing, those charges will be added to the student's account. If a student cancels housing within two weeks of the move-in date, a $200 administrative fee will be taken from the original deposit.

The licensing agreement outlines the terms of the formal agreement between a housing student and The Art Institute of California — San Francisco. It also defines basic rules and regulations that are in effect while living in School-Sponsored Housing. The length of the agreement is for three quarters. The license agreement is a legal document, and must be honored for its full term in order to avoid a breach of contract penalty and loss of security/damage deposit. For a copy of the Student Housing License Agreement, please contact the Director of Housing and Residential Life, Raymond Gonzales, at

School-Sponsored Housing charges do not include parking costs. There are unpaid parking spots available that are first come, first served, as well as paid parking that the student can arrange through the Housing & Residential Life Office. Please contact School Sponsored Housing for more information.
