Office of Student Affairs
Welcome to our community at the School of Visual Arts. SVA is an inclusive and compassionate community, where all are welcome regardless of nationality, religion, race or sexual orientation.
Starting with Orientation week, Student Affairs supports many aspects of life at SVA by creating an experience that is both relevant and exciting for the student body to participate in while utilizing the infinite opportunities New York City has to offer. Student Affairs encompasses the offices of Residence Life, Student Engagement and Leadership, Disability Resources and Student Health and Counseling Services. Whether you are a new student or a seasoned member of the community, there are many ways to connect with the campus community and enhance your student experience at SVA.
