Residence Hall Housing
Living on campus at Santa Fe University of Art and Design provides opportunities for getting involved in campus life, meeting people from around the world, challenging ideas and points of view, and fostering personal and professional development through wellness programming. The housing office specifically works to provide safe and comfortable living designed to support and encourage student success by providing opportunities for leadership development. On campus living provides opportunities for getting involved and enriches your education beyond the classroom. As resident, you will encounter the creative spirit and common goals that make Santa Fe University such a close-knit community.
Considering whether or not live on campus? Residential students routinely earn higher grades and are more likely to graduate than those living off campus. By living on campus, you avoid budgetary hassles with the convenience of one bill through the university, enjoy the proximity to classes, build leadership skills, and make life-long friendships on campus! We are committed to assisting you in being successful both academically and socially. Housing and Residential Life, in conjunction with Student Life, offers a wide range of activities both on and off campus.
Campus housing comprises four traditional residence halls and the Mountain View Quads: Two bedrooms with two bathrooms, full kitchens and common living area. Mountain View quads consist of four complexes: Sangre de Cristo, Ortiz, Jemez, and Sandia. Each building is named after the local mountain ranges surrounding Santa Fe.
There is a two-year residency requirement, which means that first-year freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus for their first four semesters. Any student who meets the following criteria is eligible for off campus housing.
