Housing

Making Architecture has reserved a small number of private rooms for our students at The Panoramic, a new, modern micro-apartment building located in the heart of SoMa, approximately one mile from CCA’s main campus.  These rooms will be available to applicants on a first come first served basis at an additional cost. 

The Panoramic is walking distance from Union Square, Chinatown, and San Francisco’s famous Ferry Building, as well as dozens of top-notch restaurants, theaters and shopping centers.  CCA's campus is just ten minutes away by bike or city bus.

Architecture students in particular will appreciate The Panoramic’s clean, efficient, sustainability-minded design, along with the numerous wellness features built into each room.  From fresh-air ventilation to engineered soundproofed walls between units to dual-glazed, UV-protected windows, The Panoramic takes into account individual lifestyle needs to ensure students have the most conducive environment in which to study and socialize.

The Panoramic floor plans are available to view here.  Making Architecture students will each be provided with a private studio micro-unit.  Please note, although the rooms in these floor plans contain two beds, Making Architecture students will be housed individually - there will be no shared rooms.  All units feature private kitchens and baths.  For a full list of the housing amenities and services provided, please see the bottom of this page. 

The cost for housing for the duration of the Making Architecture program is $1890 plus a refundable $150 damage deposit.  Residents will check in on Sunday, July 9 at 1 p.m.  Check-out is Saturday, August 5 at noon.
