Housing

No place like home

For your first year at CIA, you will live on campus with your fellow first-year students in our Uptown Residence Hall, which opens in the fall of 2014, and you will enjoy meals at Case Western Reserve University dining halls through a CWRU meal plan. After your first year, you can move to our campus apartments or off campus to an apartment in any of the nearby neighborhoods (popular spots include Little Italy and Coventry). 

Here, you are close to some of the city’s best food and entertainment. Grab pizza or cannoli up the hill in Little Italy. Or watch a film at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque, named one of the country’s best repertory movie theaters by The New York Times. No matter where you choose to live, our University Circle campus offers the experience of a true artist’s community. 

Housing policy

All unmarried, first-time students under the age of 21 are required to live in the residence hall their first full academic year. If you live with your parents or guardians within Cuyahoga County, you are considered to be within commutable distance to the college and therefore not required to live on campus; however, we still encourage you to do so.

Housing contact

The Uptown Residence Hall is managed by the director of student life and housing, and it is staffed by a graduate hall director and resident assistants.

Introducing our new home!

In the fall of 2014, CIA will open the new Uptown Residence Hall. Check out the slideshow below to see construction updates to our students' new home.
