Campus Housing

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing at Pacific Northwest College of Art is okay. The price is way too much though. It's understandable with the value of the environment and how much you get amenity-wise, but it's difficult to live there without having a job on the side to cover the extra cost. And being an art student, it's really difficult to keep that dorm paint free. I remember spilling ink a few times on the floor and having to pay for the damage. I love the amenities in the dorm, they have a working washer and dryer, bathtub, kitchen, and a large closet. Plus it's only 5 blocks from the school! I know I'll be spending my four years in the dorm because of the convenience. If I were to move out, the most affordable living would be at least 45 minutes out of the way. The process of getting a dorm was rather difficult because they had just updated their new website, so it was definitely difficult at first. Especially with the financial aid. But everything worked out fine! I love the dorms, I just wish they were a little bit more affordable for me.

Campus Housing: The housing at PNCA is really great and spacious. We had our own kitchen and bathrooms and our own washers and dryers in each dorm room. Many dorm rooms were more like shared apartments. The only complaint I had was that the prices for the dorms are exceedingly high and impossible for one student to pay for. I shared a studio apartment with another roommate and still paid around $1,300 a month. I had to pull an extra loan to pay for it.

Campus Housing: way too expensive and not enough housing for students. Only enough housing for freshmen really. also one of the most expensive student housing in the country.

Campus Housing: The apartments are spectacular, but it's very expensive. The wifi is also very poor which is unfortunate since we're paying so much to live in mandatory housing options.

Campus Housing: Right now the only housing option PNCA has is an apartment complex that is a 20-minute walk from campus. There is a shuttle that runs from the Goose to PNCA, but it seats less than 10 people, so sometimes you have to fight for a seat or walk instead. The apartments aren't bad- spacious enough, with a kitchen, bathroom, and dishwasher included. The lighting is pretty bad, though, so be prepared to bring some of your own if you want to see at night. The school provides a bed and desk for each student along with a dining table, four chairs, and a living room couch. Sometimes this works out better than others, seeing as to how when I moved in, there was a pretty bad bed bug infestation coming from the couch they had provided. All fine, as exterminations were provided, but it still took the better part of a year to get rid of (and living out of bags for months is not always the greatest thing). The bed bug problem, which had cropped up in a lot of other apartments too, seems to have been cleared up since I left. However, it is an older building in a city with a lot of college students circulating around the rooms, so it's good to ask the owners if you're thinking of moving in. PNCA's apartments aren't the cheapest, either, so I would recommend finding a different place if you want to save a little money. It is a good place to build a network of friends and keep in the social circle though (and also meet students from other schools), so if you like the people then it could be a good fit for you.
