- About SCAD
A nonrefundable and nontransferable housing reservation fee of US$250 for new students and US$500 for returning students is deducted from the overall housing fee. Returning students who cancel after June 1 are subject to an additional US$250 nonrefundable cancellation fee.
Except for those continuing students participating in early housing sign-up, students are assigned to housing based on the date their reservation fee is received in the student accounts office. Financial aid, scholarships or other funds may not be available in time to meet the quarterly housing payment deadline.
Be aware these dates are subject to change based on changes to the academic calendar. Refer to the calendar for additional dates related to classes and payment deadlines.
Due to the high demand for housing, private rooms generally are not available. Students with medical needs who may require a private room or other specific housing assignments should indicate their needs on the housing application and must provide a letter from a licensed physician certifying any condition that requires specific provisions or necessitates special consideration.
Limited housing is reserved for graduate students on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, contact residence life and housing.
Each SCAD residence hall room or apartment (except Alice House, Montgomery House and The Terrace) has one phone line with local phone service. Phones, answering machines/voice mail and long-distance service are not provided, except in Hong Kong Gold Coast Residences where phones are provided.
Upon assignment to a residence hall, each student receives an individual postal box for general mail. Mailbox keys and box assignments are distributed during orientation at a specified location.
Students in D at The Hive, Montgomery House, Oglethorpe House, Turner Annex, Turner House and W at The Hive can rent a MicroFridge® with Safe Plug® unit from Collegiate Concepts, Inc. MicroFridge units are combination appliances that function as both refrigerators and microwaves to reduce energy consumption.
In Savannah, move-in crews of student volunteers welcome and help new incoming students move into the halls. These students are able to move in two days prior to the halls opening and attend an orientation meeting the night before.
Information regarding university safety, including an annual university security report, is available.
