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 a block from the Art Academy building, 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, washer and dryer, movable wardrobe and window treatments. All suites are unfurnished, requiring students to provide their own furniture, bedding and style.
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 Advisor lives in the main 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.
Occupancy in the Art Academy residence hall for the 2013-2014 academic year costs $6,000. A $250 residence hall deposit is also due. Utilities included in the residence hall fee are water, electric, heat and air conditioning. Although available in each suite, cable television, Internet service and telephone service are not included in the residence hall fee. Students may choose to contract these services through a provider. A $300 damage deposit is invoiced with the first semester residence hall fee and tuition. The damage deposit is refunded after the student vacates the suite, minus any damage charges that may be assessed.
