    The opportunity to live on campus adds a unique dimension to your educational life at the CIA. The Residence Life staff want you to have a good academic experience and continue to grow as a person. Our objective is to make your stay in the residence hall a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

    Moving away from home and living with roommates in a community residence requires you to take increased responsibility for your actions. The CIA's residence program is designed to help make your transition to such a lifestyle a smooth one. How well you adjust depends mainly on you. Residence hall living can provide you with the unequaled experience of living and working with others, and a greater understanding of human relationships. You have the responsibility to make your residence hall a worthwile place to live. Courtesy and respect for your roommates and neighbors will help meet this objective.

    The Residence Life Staff will help you make these halls feel like home. A full-time, professional Residence Director resides in each building to provide support and supervision for the students. Your ideas, support, and participation are greatly appreciated.
