All first-year students who reside outside the Cincinnati area are required to live in the Art Academy’s Residence Hall.
Freshmen living within Greater Cincinnati may choose to reside in the residence hall or at home. Priority placement in the residence hall is given to traditional first-time freshmen and then to all other students at the Art Academy, in each case in the order in which residence hall deposits are received.
Located in a renovated building one block from the Art Academy, the main residence hall houses 27 students in 12 loft-style suites. The suites vary in size and accommodate two to five students. Each unit is equipped with:
- A full kitchen: refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, disposal
- Bathroom with shower stall
- Free washer and dryer combo in every suite
- Movable wardrobe and window treatments.
- All suites are unfurnished, requiring students to provide their own furniture, bedding and style.
The auxiliary residence hall houses 11 students in two suite-style floors. Each floor contains:
- 6 private bedrooms with half bath En suite
- Common kitchen: refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, disposal
- Common living room
- Two common showers
- Coin laundry
- All suites are unfurnished, requiring students to provide their own furniture, bedding and style
The Housing fee is $6,000 for the academic year, charged as $3,000 per semester. A Housing deposit of $250 secures a student’s spot in Art Academy Housing and is part of the first semester’s $3,000 fee. In addition to the Housing Fee, there is a $600 damage deposit charged to the student, refundable at the end of the year if no damage is assessed to the student.
The Art Academy residence hall has locked entrances, monitored by 24-hour security personnel, who are available for escort services to the main building and parking facilities. Access to the residence hall building is controlled with a security ID card. A Resident Assistant lives in each residence hall. The building is equipped with smoke detectors and a fire alarm/sprinkler system.
Parking is available in the enclosed Gateway Parking Garage or the open land-lot Quarter Parking, both located within a block of the Art Academy buildings. Semester parking passes are purchased through the Finance Office.
