At SVA, we strive to support our students both inside and outside the classroom. Students living on campus join a unique community of artists in a safe, diverse, and supportive living environment.  From residence hall social and educational programs for students, to floor meetings, and First-Year Residential experience (F.Y.R.E.) program, the SVA residence halls look to foster connections and communities that students take with them beyond their student housing experience.
