Room & Board

SOCAPA offers a housing option at all of our campuses and a full cafeteria meal plan in Vermont and Los Angeles. Students can stay right on campus in the host university’s residence halls which have lounges, computer rooms, and laundry facilities. In Vermont and Los Angeles, 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.

Students at our Manhattan Campus are responsible for purchasing their own meals. Greenwich Village has one of the most diverse concentrations of eateries, delis, cafes and restaurants of anywhere in the world. For the first three days of the session, our counselors will guide students to some of our favorite places to eat. After that, students may sign out in small groups and explore the culinary options in the East Village together. They must always be in small groups, never alone.
