Our Academic Advisors are committed to helping you through your academic journey at CalArts. 

It is our mission to foster the educational goals of CalArts students by focusing on financial strategies that help promote access, affordability, and persistence toward completing their degree program as well as succeeding beyond our campus.

Stay current with important dates regarding Tuition & Fees Deadlines and Academic Dates.

The Office of Campus Life oversees and supports two actives areas of our campus: Student Engagement and Residence Education.

Student Engagement includes supporting our campus clubs and organizations as well as hosting campus-wide on-line events such as virtual dinner parties, Jackbox game nights, open mic and gallery nights to name a few programs we will be hosting this upcoming semester.

Residence Education houses approximately 500 students in two residence halls on CalArts campus. Due to state and local guidelines we are currently unable to house students on campus. However, our Residence Education team is still here to support students while they are living off campus. Please feel free to reach out to them regarding our off campus housing guide and hotle living opportunity for CalArts students.
