Living on campus is a great way to get to know the college and other students. That’s why all of our full-time undergrads live on campus during freshman, sophomore, and junior years.

Exceptions for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors
We do allow for some exceptions. If you are a freshman, sophomore, or junior (by credit as of the first day of classes in the fall), you may live off campus if you meet one of these requirements and complete the Off-Campus Residency Application:
  • You live with your parent(s) or guardian(s) within 30 miles of AIC
  • You are a legally responsible party for dependent children or other family members
  • You live with your spouse
  • You need special housing due to a physical disability that AIC cannot reasonably accommodate

LIVING ON CAMPUS

We are excited that you are considering living on campus here at AIC! Living on campus puts you in the center of everything - the Dining Commons, Shea Library, and Schwartz Campus Center are only minutes from your residence hall.
