Live On Residency Policy

CCA is committed to supporting the success of our students. Research consistently demonstrates that students who live on campus have higher rates of retention and graduation than students who live off campus. All first and second year, and new transfer students live on campus when in-person instruction is permitted. Please read CCA's Live On Residency Policy.


Students may request a roommate of their choice at the time of applying. Final assignment of single versus double occupancy will depend on the San Francisco Department of Public Health. Your roommate preferences will be collected in advance, in preparation for double occupancy to be allowed. If the health order, is restricted to single occupancy, you will not have a roommate unless you opt in.

Family Housing

CCA does not have on campus family housing options at this time.
