Submit your application below:



The Enrollment Agreement form and a $250 Tuition Deposit must be submitted before applying for housing.


Each fall, priority is given to newly entering, first-time freshman currently residing outside of a 100-mile radius of LCAD’s Main Campus. If you live within 100 miles of Laguna Beach, you still may apply for consideration. If you are offered a space and you decline, you forfeit your deposit. Deposits only will be returned to students who are not offered a space. Selected residents will be guaranteed housing only for the 2018/19 academic year.


Priority Housing: April 1st

Housing Deadline: May 1st


Students who live beyond a 100-mile radius from Laguna Beach will be informed of their housing decision by April 15th.  Those who applied but live within a 100-mile radius will be informed of their housing status after May 1st.


Please note: The deposit does not secure students a space in the Residence Hall. Deposits will be returned to those who are not offered a space.


Supervised by the Director of Student Life and Resident Managers, LCAD’s Housing Program promotes communal living in a small apartment complex. Roommates and units will be assigned based on questions and requests on the Roommate Questionnaire. Assigned roommates will coordinate cleaning, grocery buying/sharing, cooking, decorating, carpooling, and the frequency of guests. This experience strengthens life skills such as adaptation, transition, and compromise. Residents are expected to maintain the highest level of conduct. Failure to comply with all LCAD and LCAD Housing regulations will result in removal from the housing program, without compensation or refund.
