Join your fellow CIA students in Taplin Hall, conveniently located within a short walk of both CIA buildings and close to Case Western Reserve University dining halls. Taplin offers common areas with space for work on studio assignments, a large main lounge, and laundry rooms. In addition, you’ll have access to a newly renovated workroom with easels, drawing tables, and a ceiling-hung display rack. The Graduate Hall Director and Resident Assistants are on staff full-time. Taplin Hall is a smoke-free building.
Students who have completed their first year of study are free to choose their living arrangements off campus. The Office of Student Life and Housing maintains a list of available apartments near the campus.
Fees for the 2013-14 year are:
For more information about housing plans, contact Matthew Smith, Director of Student Life and Housing, at 216.421.7495 or email@example.com.
While on campus for StART in the summer, you will have the opportunity to fill out a Roommate Preference Form. This form helps us to get to know what you like and what you do not. Even if you don’t have a preference, complete the form and we will do our best to match you with someone who has similar tastes and studying styles. If you already know someone you would like to room with, we will be happy to match you as long as the other student indicates that they would like to live with you too.
Roommate matches will be sent sometime during the first week of August. This way, you will have a month to discuss who is bringing what and iron out details before move in.
Taplin offers single, double, and quad rooms on four floors.
The majority of rooms are doubles, approximately 15’7” in length and 11’8” in width. Each residence hall bedroom contains a bed, extra-long twin mattress (6’8” long by 3’ wide), a desk, overhead lighting, drawer and closet space, a wastebasket, and blinds. You must provide your own linens, including pillows and blankets. Review the full list of what to bring.
You may build a loft for your bed, but it has to be freestanding and can’t be anchored into the wall, floor, or ceiling. The loft must have at least 36 inches from mattress to ceiling. Wood parts must not be treated. You are responsible for disassembly and storage of your own furniture. You must complete a Room Modification Form, which is kept on file. All current furniture must be stored in the room as well.
Each room is equipped with a standard digital cable package and Internet access. Refer to the CWRU website for all specifications for your computer needs. If you have a television that is not digital tv ready, you will have to supply your own converter box.
Your application for a room in the residence hall is your first piece of housing paperwork. It should be filed as soon as possible and is included in the college’s acceptance package.
To be guaranteed housing on campus, you must submit your residence hall application and required $150 housing deposit before May 1 to ensure that your preference of room assignment will be given first consideration. Deposits received after that date cannot be guaranteed housing and will be placed by the date received. The deposit is forfeited if the contract is not fulfilled. You will receive notification of status after June 1.
Once you have sent in your housing application and deposit, you will receive a packet of information in the mail starting in May. This packet contains several pieces of information. Please complete and return those documents promptly, and make sure to keep copies for your own records. If for some reason you have lost a form, simply follow the links below and print a new one.
Residence hall housing contracts are issued for a full academic year. The top portion is for you to fill out and sign. Once you have signed it, tear off the back copy for your records and send the top in.
All students living in Taplin Hall must complete and return an emergency medical information form and a meningitis and hepatitis B statement.
Recovery House is an alternative housing option that is available for CIA students who want to maintain a clean and sober lifestyle. Recovery House assists resident students in developing healthy life skills while remaining free of alcohol and other drugs. It is a two-unit apartment house for six residents and a graduate resident director located in the South Residential Village. Resident students develop an individualized plan for continued sobriety along with personal health objectives. Participants are encouraged to assist each other in creating a safe and supportive place to live. Recovery House is a cooperative effort of the Office of Housing, The Collegiate Behavioral Health Advisory Council, University Counseling Services, Francis Payne Bolton School of Nursing, Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, and the Cleveland Psychoanalytic Center.
The college years mark a time when students engage in self-exploration, creativity and change. At times these changes are intentional and understandable; at other times they are unpredictable and seemingly chaotic. Each year over 1200 Case and CIA students seek counseling to gain perspective and to lay the groundwork for personal change. UCS offers CIA students confidential help with their personal counseling and behavioral health needs, including individual, couples and group counseling, psychiatric medication management, stress management and recovery support for students living ‘clean and sober’. Our offices are staffed with psychologists, social workers and consulting psychiatrists and most services are provided without cost (some of our specialty services such as neuropsychological assessment require a fee.
