These credentials give you access to the following systems:

 

LET’S TALK

Get to know your fellow first-year students better! Join a closed Facebook group just for incoming CCAD students (a moderator will approve your request to join).

 

CAMPUS: URBAN EX

CampUs: Urban Ex is a three-day experience for incoming students designed to help build pride in and connection to CCAD and the city you’ll soon call home. The CampUs experience runs from Monday, Aug. 20, to Wednesday, Aug. 22, and features urban discovery, CCAD traditions, and plenty of fun. The program is free, but space is limited to 40 incoming students. Find out more about CampUs UrbanEx and how to apply here.

 

DISABILITY ACCOMMODATION REQUESTS

The Learning Support Office works with students who need academic or housing related accommodations due to a documented medical, psychological, or cognitive disability. To begin the process of requesting accommodations, or to submit documentation, contact the Learning Support staff at learningsupport@ccad.edu. Find out more about resources and services provided by Learning Support.

 

MEET YOUR RESIDENCE LIFE STAFF

Our residence halls are your home here at CCAD. The housing is managed and staffed by Director of Residence Life Mickey Hart, Residential Community Coordinator Jennifer Bermúdez, and 13 Resident Advisors, who are there to make connections and ensure your safety and security. Be sure to check your email — if you’re living on campus this fall, you’ll be getting housing info from us next month! Questions? Email housing@ccad.edu.

 

& SHOP

Get your swag on at Ampersand, our shop for all things CCAD, from college gear to work by CCAD grads. Ampersand has limited summer hours, or you can shop online, any time.
