Living in the Two50two apartments was fantastic. The dorms are right across the street from the school, so you are able to easily get to your classes on time without having to take a bus (like the last dorms), and you are easily able to go home between classes or even during breaks during your classes. You are literally on top of a Blick store, so that is super convenient, and DigiCopy is a two minute walk down the street for you Communication Design, Illustration, and Photography majors! The dorms are like living in luxury- they're nicer than your first apartment will be, they're practically brand new right now, and they come fully furnished and with all appliances (except a toaster)- you really can't get any better. Just make sure you have good roommates and your time here will be a blast!

There is so many different kinds of people here and from all over and the school community is very accepting of many different ideals and beliefs. The walls are always covered with some kind of art, and there are regular art shows in the galleries located on the river level and the forth floor raw space. You will see faculty art work on the walls of the river level as well, and even in the gallery. Student work is also shown and it is mind boggling to see what is created. There is also a photo gallery on the second floor which display work from many different artist.

The building is brand new and right across the street from the building classes are held in. I lived there for one year and the dorms are student apartments with two students in a bedroom and two bedrooms to a unit. There are also two bathrooms. The building doesn't accommodate social events very well because eager participation is low. The school is located in a very expensive district of the city so the housing price is excellent in comparison to what is directly around, but still extremely expensive.
