Campus Housing

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's about $5,000 for the whole semester.

There's the ACB dorms and the Tubman dorms. There are two types of rooms:

A. 2-3 people

B. 4-6 people

The ACB will be renovated this summer.

Campus Housing: It is very convenient to live on campus. The meal plan allows you to go the grill located on the campus and as far as work rooms, there is plenty of space for students to work on projects. However living in the Taubman Center (TC) building has average room for three roommates to share, while the ACB building is very spacious. The people are kind, yet they keep to themselves. The cost of living on campus is pricey though- at least $550. However if you are lucky to get the College for Creative Studies scholarship, you can live on campus free (something i got). You just need to uphold a 2.8 GPA. Both campuses have 24 hr. computer labs, which is very convenient for late night projects.

Campus Housing: Great housing depending on the campus you're on. I prefer the Taubman campus to the housing in the ACB because I find it cleaner, safer, and more secure. The ACB housing has a lot more room though and it's a lot closer to most classes you'll ever take.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
