Room & Board

SOCAPA offers a Room & Board option at all of our campuses. Students can stay right on campus in the host university’s residence halls which have lounges, computer rooms, and laundry facilities. Residential students eat most of their meals at the campus cafeteria. Once per session, we take the whole group off campus and out for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Our Room & Board Fee includes double or triple occupancy housing, night and weekend activities (including transportation, tickets and supervision) and three meals per day, Monday through Friday, except at our Manhattan campus (see below). On weekends, depending on the campus, students may be responsible for purchasing some or all of their meals. Please refer to the campus-specific information below.
