Student Experience

A place to thrive.

College is an exciting time full of new challenges and opportunities. ACC communities offer you a place where you can feel at home and supported in whatever adventures you take on. Our welcoming environments and amenities are designed to help you study, relax with friends and stay physically and mentally healthy.

Student Staff supporting the Hi, How Are You Project

Supporting your journey.

ACC’s premier Residence Life program, led by your community assistant peers, offers a variety of educational, recreational and social activities to help you make the most of your college experience. Mental health support is at the heart of Residence Life. In partnership with the Hi, How Are You Project, we train our RAs and staff on how to talk with students about mental health and connect you with local support resources.

A better value for you.

We offer a home away from home at a wide variety of price points. And we build in budget-friendly features. Nearly all ACC communities offer fully furnished units at no extra fee. Fitness centers, academic success centers and other amenities are available for all residents to enjoy–no membership required. And 97% of our communities are within walking distance of public transit. Plus, our individual liability leases mean each student is only responsible for their own rent, even if their roommate transfers or graduates.

Protecting our planet.

ACC leads the student housing industry in green building. We have rigorous processes in place to minimize the use of natural resources at our communities, which also lowers utility expenses. And our For the Greener Good resident education campaign can help you use your new home's sustainable features and build lifelong eco-friendly habits.

Two Roommates Studying Together

Finding the right fit.

No roommate? No problem! Your student can simply complete our personal profile card and we'll match them with someone who expressed similar interests, hobbies and study habits. We also offer gender inclusive matching.

Student Staff at Centennial Place

A career jump start.

Through our Community Assistant program, students can start building their resumes while still in school. Our CAs develop the critical skills today's employers want, such as leadership, problem solving, communication and collaboration. Students who are ready to start preparing for their future can apply for a CA position at their community.
