Family Housing Applications—We are not accepting new family housing applications for the 2023–2024 academic year; however, current residents may continue residing in family housing. Due to the construction of a new mixed-use building with flexible living units and studios, family housing units are limited. A timeline for reopening family housing applications is forthcoming. Please contact Chelsea Napper, Housing Director, with any questions.
Smudging Notification Requirement—Campus residents are required to notify housing staff prior to smudging in the residence center or family housing by submitting the Smudging Notification form. For more information regarding the Open Flame Products and Incense Policy, see page 68 of the 2023–2024 Student Handbook.
We are pleased you are interested in living on campus, which could be one of the most rewarding experiences of your college career. National research indicates students who live on campus are happier, healthier, and more likely to succeed in college than those who do not. Living in the residence hall or family housing complex offers you everything you need for college success including convenient access to campus facilities such as classrooms, library and studios, recreational and fitness centers, friends and classmates right next door, comfortable living accommodations, and a residence life staff to help you 24/7.
The goal of IAIA housing is to positively impact each student’s college experience. The programs and activities presented by residence life staff provide opportunities for establishing lifelong relationships, creating familiarity with our community, achieving academic success, experiencing diversity and social justice, enhancing health and well-being, and developing skills you will use throughout your life.
There are two options for housing at IAIA—Center for Lifelong Education (CLE) Residence Center and our family housing apartments. Each area provides safe and secure housing in a healthy, positive, and inclusive environment.
The CLE Residence Center is located adjacent to the CLE Conference Center and is the hub of campus life, providing students a convenient, comfortable and safe place to live and flourish during their educational journey at IAIA. The residence center is a two-story, traditional style dormitory. Each of the 77 rooms accommodates two students and has a private bath. Each floor of the residence center has a laundry, kitchen, and a large common area for watching television, playing games, relaxing, and holding meetings or study groups.
All students applying for housing in the CLE Residence Center must submit completed applications and $250 housing and key deposit. The rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Download and view the following documents:
