For your first year at CIA, you will live on campus with your fellow freshmen in Taplin Hall and will enjoy meals at Case Western Reserve University dining halls through a CWRU meal plan. After your first year, you can move 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 take in 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.
All unmarried, first-time students under the age of 21 are required to live in the residence hall for 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.
Taplin Hall is managed by our Director of Student Life and Housing, and staffed by a Graduate Hall Director as well as Resident Assistants.
In the fall of 2014, CIA will be opening its new Residence Hall! Check out the slideshow to see updates to the construction of CIA students' new home!
