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  2016-17 CalArts Residence Life Brochure  for more information.
The On-Campus Housing Application for the 2016-17 is now available! Click the link below to download the application. Please carefully read all information on the cover page for submission instructions and important details.

We are still accepting applications even though the May 2 deadline has passed. Applications received after the deadline will automatically be placed on the waiting list. When space becomes available due to cancellations, applications will be removed from the waiting list in oder they were received so it is still important to submit your application as soon as possible. All forms of the application and the required $350 payment must be received for an application to be considered complete.
Applications may be submitted via e-mail, fax, or standard mail. Payment may be made by check/money order, over the phone with a debit/credit card, or via bank wire.
If paying by wire transfer, please be sure to check with your bank
for the cost of the wire. The bank usually deducts the cost of the wire from the amount of money that you send, which in some instances may cause your payment to be short. Please use the following information:
