A major highlight of The Young Americans College of the Performing Arts is the opportunity our students have to live and grow together. In addition to our on-campus resources, many students also choose to live in student housing. Student apartments are just around the corner from our campus, and our current students can be seen walking, skateboarding, biking, and scootering to classes and rehearsals on a daily basis.
The average U.S. college dorm room is 228 sq. ft. Our student apartments are 891 sq. ft.
The Young Americans College of the Performing Arts has made special arrangements with an apartment complex located a short walk from our rehearsal facility. These apartment facilities are gated and provide a clean, comfortable living environment. Each apartment will have two bedrooms with closets, two full bathrooms, and come furnished with a refrigerator, one twin bed (regular) per student, dishwasher, stove, in-unit washer and dryer, internet/WiFi connection, and access to a pool, hot tub, and fitness center.
The initial rental contract with The Young Americans will be for the freshman year. The lease term will commence late July and end late April. Students are required to have a cosigner regardless of age. For details on current pricing, visit our Tuition & Housing Costs page.
If a student needs to break their lease for any reason, they will be responsible for finding another eligible Young American to take their place, who will then sign a separate replacement lease with The Young Americans.
