‌If you plan to live in the residence halls at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), you must electronically submit our Housing Contract. You can access the housing application and contract by visiting the SAIC Housing web site and logging in with your ARTIC account- the same login used to access your email.  Since the Housing Contract is electronic only, Residence Life will not accept any contracts submitted via mail or e-mail.

If you have any instance in any state or country where you have plead guilty or were found to be guilty by a judge or jury to charges that you committed a crime other than minor traffic offenses, you must complete and email the Student Disclosure of Criminal Convictions form in addition electronically submitting the Housing Contract. Please fill out the form electronically and email it to stulife@saic.edu. If you are unable to complete the form electronically, you may fill it out and scan and send it to stulife@saic.edu.

For students living with us for Summer 2017, we have switched to electronic contracts. Please apply and sign your contract through the online application form. Summer housing information and the application form can be found on our Summer Housing Information page. Please visit the page in the spring of 2017 for updated information.

To complete your application, you will also need to submit a $550 housing prepayment fee along with your forms. You can pay online, by check, or money order. No cash payments are accepted. Please refer to our How to Apply page for complete instructions. Summer housing information can be found on our Summer Housing Information page.

You will receive email notification (sent to your SAIC email account) of your complete application. Once you receive this email, you have secured a space on-campus for the 2017 Spring semester.
