As you explore your housing options, consider on-campus housing, which provides greater exposure to the CalArts community and the Santa Clarita Valley, as well as the opportunity to hone vital social skills.
CalArts offers on-campus housing in two separate units: Chouinard Hall for undergraduate students and Ahmanson Hall for graduate students. CalArts will accommodate as many students who need on-campus housing as possible. The Housing Office's priority is to facilitate a smooth transition for incoming students new to the Institute, and to offer returning students a reliable and comfortable homebase. All registered students are eligible to apply for on-campus housing.
Chouinard Hall houses approximately 340 students through double occupancy rooms with bathrooms shared between two or three rooms. Ahmanson Hall provides apartment-style housing for 99 students in 17 suites. Each suite has either five or six bedrooms—each assigned to a single student—with a shared living room, kitchen and bathroom.
All mail correspondence, including completed applications or any questions regarding on-campus housing and residential life, should be sent to the following address:
