College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, but i am there all the time. If i lived there i guess it would be ok

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: The College for Creative Studies provides some of the best campus housing options in the country. Amenities surrounding the aspects of campus housing are premium and exclusive.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Small campus - older dorms but had great archietecture

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the ACB and all my classes are on the Ford Campus. Super convenient, pretty big living space even with four other people living in the suite.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have lived on campus for two years now. There's no "honor college" or special dorms for things like that. You have two main options - the Taubman center, or the Art Center Building. The Taubman is great if you're a design student. All of the design classes are on that campus, and the rooms are perfect for holding drafting tables, etc. However, it very much feels like you're living in an extended stay hotel. It feels cold, both figuratively and literally. You can't control the temperature of the room. Also, there's no privacy from your roommate(s). The only door in the room besides the one to enter the room is the bathroom door. The rest of the room is just one open space with a storage loft. There's no kitchen, so you have to have a meal plan, and the cafeteria hours are strange and the food is super expensive. The ACB, however, is very much like living in an apartment. You have 1-2 bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room, and a dining room. The radiators don't always work when they should, the water pressure is weird if you live on the upper floors, and the walls are more paint than plaster nowadays. The building is an old apartment building, however, so all of the oddities it comes with are to be expected. It's cozy and very homey if you make it so.

Living on campus is truly an experience. Since CCS is right in the city of Detroit, you are next to everything that is going on. There's a different vibe to everything, and the atmosphere is alive. When you live on the Taubman campus, you get more of a traditional dorm space. It's neat and clean, and you're required to get a meal plan, which works well especially for freshmen. This might be their first time away from home, and they're learning all these new self-sustaining responsibilities, and to lessen the burden a little bit by having a meal plan helps a lot.

At the ACB, you get to experience a lot more space in an apartment-style dorm, which works better for more independent students and upperclassmen who haven't moved off campus yet. The number of students who live in these dorms is higher, but some people consider it to be worth it because of the full-size kitchen. However, the ACB is an older building and has definitely been lived in, and the elevators seem to break down at the most inopportune times.It all really just depends on what kind of experience you want. If you schedule an appointment with admissions, they can give you a tour of living quarters, and you'll be blown away.
