IHPS Homestay

ArtCenter has recently started a partnership with International Housing Placement Service (IHPS), a home-stay resource. IHPS provides housing placement with local residents for out-of-state and international students enrolled in various ArtCenter programs. In-state students may also apply for housing using IHPS. Please be clear if the student is under age 18. To apply go to, or call 626-798-0209. *IHPS is a program endorsed by ArtCenter, but is not a function of the college.

Note: ArtCenter does not investigate the quality or safety of the housing options available, nor does it involve itself in disputes between landlords and students.
