Summer at Cornish

It has been an absolutely amazing experience to attend Summer at Cornish! I grew not only as an artist from my classes and the incredible instructors, but also as an individual from staying in the dorms with a group of artists who were all interested in the visual and performing arts. I am definitely applying to Cornish for college!

Housing is available for Summer at Cornish students ages 15 to 18. Living in Cornish’s dorms fosters community between artists, dancers, performers, and musicians from near and far. Discover Seattle, make new friends, and grow as an artist by incorporating the live-in experience with your Summer at Cornish program.

For students living in the residence halls, Cornish’s Housing and Residence Life Office strives to provide a safe and secure living environment that encourages the personal and artistic growth of all students. Residents have access to a full-time live-in staff and each resident will be assigned a program assistant who performs a nightly check-in for all students. Program assistants are currently enrolled Cornish students who are trained in community building, problem solving, and emergency procedures. Housing students will have access to the college for two evenings per week of studio/rehearsal time to develop their work. Chaperoned activities such as guided tours of Seattle, gallery and museum visits, movie nights, and outings to local parks and beaches are also provided on evenings and weekends for students.

Cornish Housing is available to students ages 15 to 18. To be eligible for housing, participants must be enrolled in a full course-load (Monday through Friday 9 am to 4 pm). Our residence life building is conveniently located two blocks from our Main Campus Center, very close to the heart of downtown Seattle and the Space Needle. Individual rooms are double occupancy, have a private bath, and are much larger than typical residence hall rooms. The cost of living in the residence halls is $600/week per person. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included, as well as twenty-four hour supervision, transportation and activities fees.

Additional information regarding housing and the Summer at Cornish Housing Application is provided in the housing application. Please send completed applications by mail to: Cornish College of the Arts, Summer at Cornish, 1000 Lenora Street, Seattle, WA 98121.
