Right now the only housing option PNCA has is an apartment complex that is a 20-minute walk from campus. There is a shuttle that runs from the Goose to PNCA, but it seats less than 10 people, so sometimes you have to fight for a seat or walk instead. The apartments aren't bad- spacious enough, with a kitchen, bathroom, and dishwasher included. The lighting is pretty bad, though, so be prepared to bring some of your own if you want to see at night. The school provides a bed and desk for each student along with a dining table, four chairs, and a living room couch. Sometimes this works out better than others, seeing as to how when I moved in, there was a pretty bad bed bug infestation coming from the couch they had provided. All fine, as exterminations were provided, but it still took the better part of a year to get rid of (and living out of bags for months is not always the greatest thing). The bed bug problem, which had cropped up in a lot of other apartments too, seems to have been cleared up since I left. However, it is an older building in a city with a lot of college students circulating around the rooms, so it's good to ask the owners if you're thinking of moving in. PNCA's apartments aren't the cheapest, either, so I would recommend finding a different place if you want to save a little money. It is a good place to build a network of friends and keep in the social circle though (and also meet students from other schools), so if you like the people then it could be a good fit for you.
