Housing

A creative education at an Art Institutes school is as rigorous and demanding as the real world of creativity. Your home away from the classroom should be a space where you can both do coursework and enjoy the company of your fellow students. Our Office of Residential Life and Housing is your source for resources and information about housing. Our School Sponsored Housing program will arrange accommodations in a nearby apartment complex, where you’ll live with other students. Student Resident Assistants who live onsite will help you connect with your peers by organizing social, cultural, and creative programs and activities. Basic furnishing and utilities are included in the quarterly housing charge.*
