The Residence Life team oversees SVA’s four residence halls with a team of live-on professional and student staff. Students living on campus join a unique community of artists in a safe, diverse, and supportive living environment.

We educate students regarding need-based opportunities including gift aid (grants) and self-help aid (loans and work-study), alternative financing options (credit-based loans), and offer guidance for merit-based opportunities (scholarships) within and outside SVA.
The Office of Student Accounts is here to help you with all questions regarding paying for your tuition and fees. You can find useful information about tuition cost, due dates, payment methods and our payment plan by visiting sva.edu/tuition.
