Welcome to the start of your CalArts experience. As you explore your housing options, 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 or Ahmanson Hall. If you are interested in on-campus accommodations, please read through our Residence Life Brochure  and submit the 2015/16 On-Campus Housing Application per the instructions below.
If you would like to apply for on-campus housing for the 2015-16 academic year, please download the application below and return it to the Residence Life Office. Applications may be submitted via regular mail, e-mail, fax, or hand-delivery to the Residence Life Office. Please include your $350.00 deposit when submitting your application.
We are currently accepting applications for housing for the remainder of the Fall semester and the Spring semester. 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.
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. Waited listed applications still have a good chance of securing a space over the course of the summer. Please call to speak to one of our staff members if you are concerned about your application status.
Check-in day for new Spring semester residents is Wednesday January 6th, 2016. We will be providing van service from the Bob Hope Burbank Airport and Van Nuys Flaway station on this day only for Spring semester returns. Please contact the Residence Life Office in the first week of December if you would like to sign up for one of these van runs.
Download the on-campus housing application below or pick one up in person in the Residence Life Office, located in Chouinard Hall, room 101.
Return ALL pages of the completed forms with the required $350 security deposit directly to the Residence Life Office either by USPS, fax or email.
Note: Faxed and emailed applications will not be processed until the $350 deposit is received.
