In New York, one traditional campus residence hall with community bathrooms, three traditional residence halls with semi-private bathrooms, six suite-style lodges, and 20 apartment-style townhouses provide housing for more than 1,700 students on campus. In California, three traditional campus residence halls with semi-private bathrooms provide housing for more than 175 students on campus. In addition to the buildings on the California campus, the CIA rents houses and apartments in the community for student housing provided in a CIA-controlled environment.
There is an assortment of single-, double-, triple-, and quad-occupancy accommodations available. During peak occupancy, the CIA reserves the right to create additional triple-occupancy rooms. Students with the highest class seniority receive priority for both room and building assignment. Upon completion of the housing application, students may request a desired roommate. All requests will be considered; however, the college reserves the right to make all assignments and re-assignments as it deems necessary and appropriate. Accommodations are available on campus for married students, provided both are students and they are legally married.
All residential students will receive their housing assignments via their CIA-issued e-mail address, approximately two weeks before their expected move-in date. Students' housing assignments will outline specific times to move into their rooms. Room keys will be available at the residence hall to which they are assigned.
