The cost for housing varies based on the type of room in which a student lives and whether or not he or she is required to have a meal plan.

There are three principle expenses associated with campus housing:

 

Housing Deposit: $500

When a student applies for housing, an initial deposit of $500 is due with the application. This $500 acts as a security deposit and carries over all semesters the student remains in campus housing. Per the Housing License Agreement, $75 is taken out of every student's housing deposit each semester a student lives in housing for general building maintenance. Students are responsible for replenishing their housing deposit each semester so that the balance is always $500.

Additional cleaning or charges for damages are also deducted from the Housing Deposit. Students do not need to pay a new deposit as long as they continue living in Campus Housing; they just need to replenish their deposit balance. For more information on Housing deductions and charges, please review the Housing License Agreement.

 

Rent

Ranges from approximately $3,820 - $7,335 per semester for Fall or Spring. Rent is based on the type of room a student selects, varying by the number of roommates a student has. Specific information regarding buildings/room types offered can be found in our Building Room Type Guide.

If a student is paying for housing out of pocket, rent is due in full for the semester before a student may move into Campus Housing.

If a student plans to pay for housing with Financial Aid, the student must work directly with the Financial Aid Department to ensure the cost of housing will be covered. Financial Aid will then verify the student's coverage with the Housing Department before the student may move into campus housing.

Meal Plan (If Applicable)

Meal plans cost $2,155 per semester for Fall and/or Spring, and $955 for the Summer semester. First-year students are required to have a meal plan for the first year they live in Campus Housing. Meal plans are also required for all residents living in The Commodore (825 Sutter St.), International House (860 Sutter St.), Howard Brodie (655 Sutter St.), Auguste Rodin (1055 Pine St.), and Clara Gil Stephens (620 Sutter St.). Meal plans are mandatory in these buildings because there is no full kitchen facility for student use and students will have no way to prepare meals for themselves.

Dining services at Academy of Art University are provided by Sodexo. The Sutter Street Café provides restaurant style accommodations for students. All meals are made to order and are placed via a touch screen menu. The I-House Cafe and the Rodin Café are the other two options that provide a more traditional atmosphere to residence hall dining, including daily specials and grill menus. For more specific information on meal plan options and cost, please visit our Dining Services homepage.
