GETTING STARTED: Plan early! Student Services is your go-to source for planning your housing needs.

Your Student Services team is available for help with housing. However, you'll want to create your own "My Housing Plan" ... examining your lifestyle needs, budget, location (on or off campus), etc. As a result you'll want to connect with Student Services early following acceptance to the College.

SmartSuites is the on campus housing option offering a private bedroom/study option in a secure environment. For off campus housing you'll find a listing lower on this page.

Again, Student Services is prepared to help in your quest to develop a workable housing plan. Live contact is preferred to help build a detail profile related to your needs. Find the team at +1 919.488.8500. International students are advised, that College hours are based on New York zone time.

SmartSuites may be your best option if you apply early!

SmartSuites is on Campus. SmartSuites is an all-private bedroom/private study home away from home. SmartSuites availability is limited due to demand. SmartSuites is supported by Student Services who also facilitate Off-Campus Housing.




SmartSuites housing is limited to available space and completion of all application steps listed ... and is NOT guaranteed until all application steps are confirmed by Student Services. Students are advised that SmartSuites availability is limited and early lease application is advised.

1 Read over the steps below. Plan on taking the first steps listed early to avoid future disappointment.

Prepare to complete the My Housing Application below. As a follow along to completing the application, plan to access the My Housing Details link below. 

SmartSuite housing stay is usually coordinated with tuition renewal dates throughout the program. Each My Housing Application requires a $20 processing fee payable within 30 days (or sooner, depending on start date). A first time damage deposit of $400 is also required 30 days following application. Again, plan to review My Housing Details regarding  damage deposit requrement.

2 Understand that part or all of your housing budget for qualified students may be considered after completing application to Living Arts and then completing a budget plan with the Financial Assistance Office. Your Admissions Advisor and/or staff will assist you on request. Not all students may receive housing support. Do complete all steps early to find support possibilities.
