The housing at Pacific Northwest College of Art is okay. The price is way too much though. It's understandable with the value of the environment and how much you get amenity-wise, but it's difficult to live there without having a job on the side to cover the extra cost. And being an art student, it's really difficult to keep that dorm paint free. I remember spilling ink a few times on the floor and having to pay for the damage. I love the amenities in the dorm, they have a working washer and dryer, bathtub, kitchen, and a large closet. Plus it's only 5 blocks from the school! I know I'll be spending my four years in the dorm because of the convenience. If I were to move out, the most affordable living would be at least 45 minutes out of the way. The process of getting a dorm was rather difficult because they had just updated their new website, so it was definitely difficult at first. Especially with the financial aid. But everything worked out fine! I love the dorms, I just wish they were a little bit more affordable for me.
