DCAD's intimate campus offers the luxury of classes, dining and housing all within one block of each other.
Student housing options include The Saville Residence Hall, which also includes the Tatiana Copeland Student Center, and the residence hall at 707 N. King Street. Opened in Fall of 2012, the residence hall at 707 N. King Street is home to the 707 Cafe', providing a diverse and well-rounded meal plan for both residents and commuters.
A Resident Assistant lives on each floor of each building. Knowledgeable about the College and community, they serve as role models, enforce community policies, provide advice and guidance, and organize activities.
In addition, safety is a priority. Each residence hall is locked 24 hours a day and can only be accessed with a building-specific key card, issued to residents when they move in. Each building is equipped with a full sprinkler system; smoke detectors and fire extinguishers are provided in each unit. All DCAD buildings are smoke-free.
DCAD's Office of Student Services assists in matching compatible roommates and helps residents coordinate plans for other furnishings. Each resident is provided with a regular twin bed, a desk and stool.
