Live At CCAD, you’ll live in a close-knit community surrounded by eight distinct cultural districts that bring people in from all over for art, food, and festivals.

On Campus

Design Square Apartments

New apartment-style living with walls of glass and private bedrooms for four Schottenstein Hall

Suites with two bedrooms, private bathrooms, and a common area

Off Campus

Many of our upper-level students live in adjacent neighborhoods. Columbus is one of the top 10 creative scenes in the country. Forbes says we’re one of the 15 most affordable cities in the U.S.

Eat On or off campus, you’ll eat like a foodie. Our dining hall is new and beautiful—and the food is seriously delicious. Not to mention we’re just a few blocks from more than 165 restaurants, pubs, and clubs in downtown alone. Grab a coffee or smoothie—or dine café style in our Student Center. Late nights, you’ll find more than 50 food trucks prowling the city streets.

Play Of course, there’s lots to do on campus. But off campus, you’ll find that daily life is easy and people are friendly. And young: Columbus is one of the nation’s largest college towns, so there’s lots of rule-bending energy, big thinking, and stuff to do. Enjoy live music nightly with 20 or 20,000 friends at dozens of nearby venues. For shopping, go local or go big—all within a few miles of campus.

At CCAD, we want every student to have an opportunity to pursue their PASSION, regardless of their means.
