Apply for Housing

Welcome 2014/2015 Applicants


If you are a current student looking for somewhere to live, we invite you to consider on-campus housing, which provides greater exposure to the CalArts community and the Santa Clarita Valley. On-campus housing places you in a position to maximize your experience at CalArts. Knowing your community can create a positive living situation. We accommodate just over a third of the campus population through either Chouinard Hall, Ahmanson Hall, or our campus adjacent Woodglen Apartments. If you are interested in on-campus accommodations, please read through our Housing Brochure and then stop by Residence Life, located in Chouinard Hall room 101, to find out what options are currently available.

If you are a current student and would like to apply for on-campus housing for the 2014-15 academic year, please come to the Residence Life Office to pick up an application. Applications can be sent via email, fax, or standard mail.  If you are currently studying on-campus, we recommend that you deliver your application in-person to Residence Life. Please include your $350.00 deposit when submitting your application.

Our availability of spaces changes on a daily basis as we are receiving cancellations and new applications regularly.  If you are interested in living on-campus, we would strong recommend that you apply as soon as possible.  If a space is not immediately availabe when we receive your completed application, you will be placed on a short waiting list until you either secure a space or choose to be removed from the waiting list.
