Residential Life Office

Living on campus is very different from living at home—it offers not only a place to eat and sleep, but the chance to be a part of a vibrant artistic community to learn and grow with. To facilitate the on-campus living experience for new and returning students, the Residence Life Office offers a reliable and comfortable home base to create a positive living situation.

A Commitment to In-person Education Next Fall

With recent developments in vaccinations and lowered transmission rates, CalArts is on track to conduct in-person classes and residential experiences for the fall 2021 semester. Even though we have not received definitive permission or even direction regarding the fall from the County of Los Angeles, we are planning for as much on-campus learning [and living] as is safely possible.

As more information is available regarding on and off-campus housing for students it will be shared here and through students CalArts email accounts.

If CalArts students and families have questions in the meantime, please email the Residential Life Office at
