The buildings are equipped with smoke detectors and a fire alarm/sprinkler system.
- For students living on campus for the summer Master of Arts in Art Education (MAAE) degree, housing is a flat fee of $1700 plus a $400 damage deposit, which is refundable at the end of the term if no damage is assessed to that student.

AAC Housing and COVID-19
To reduce the risk of students contracting or spreading COVID-19, the AAC will be taking precautions by reducing the number of students per dorm room, providing isolated housing for students who have tested positive for COVID-19, connecting students to testing and health services, and decreasing the use of shared, public spaces within AAC housing.
Dorm rooms include full kitchens equipped with a stove, refrigerator and dishwasher, where students are encouraged to cook their own meals. Other AAC food options will include donated, flash-frozen soups from Le Soupe as well as breakfast and lunch options from Sunny Blu, AAC’s in-house food service. Student activities will take place in the form of remote programming and in-person programs as appropriate. Health and safety are top priority while offering opportunities for students to feel engaged and connected to the AAC community.
The following housing precautions will be in place:
- Each dorm unit has its own bathroom which will only be shared by unit residents.
- Each dorm unit will be considered a “household.“ Inside each dorm unit, students who live there will not be required to wear a face covering or observe social distancing. Once students leave their unit, they must abide by campus wide requirements and guidelines related to face coverings, physical distancing, and cleaning and sanitation.
- Dorm residents are required to adhere to health guidelines when interacting with students outside of their dorm unit and in any public spaces.
- Card access to AAC housing will only be available to dorm residents to discourage student visitation for nonresidents. Dorm residents will not be permitted to have overnight guests until further notice.
The move-in process will include practicing social distancing and limiting numbers of people in public spaces, elevators, stairwells, etc. Each student is permitted to have one family member assist in move-in and enter AAC housing. Students and the designated family member must complete our self-administered wellness check prior to entering AAC housing and must wear a mask throughout the duration of move-in. All move-in details will be shared with student dorm residents prior to move-in weekend, including requirements and recommended packing lists.
Students should submit a COVID Vaccine record here, or COVID test results here.

Many AAC students live off campus, and we encourage all students to follow the guidelines of local, state and federal health officials. While on campus, all students will need to follow any additional public health guidelines particular to the AAC. Off-campus students will not be permitted to visit on-campus AAC housing.
