Professional Certificate in Visual Storytelling and Independent Filmmaking Certificate program

Student Residences are located throughout Rockport - and include dorms, student rooms in campus homes. Students may choose to reside off-campus. There are accommodations on-campus for around 100 students in a combination of singles or doubles. Rooms with either shared or private bathrooms are available. Rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Students may request a single, double or dorm room in a particular price range. If your preference is full, our Housing Department will call to discuss your options. A housing deposit of $200 is required at the time you register to hold your preference in accommodations. This $200 deposit will be converted to a damage deposit when you arrive. This deposit will be returned five days after the close of the term, or applied to your next term, provided your room has been left in the condition in which you found it. We will deduct the costs for cleaning and repairs should these be warranted.
