This is an image of the Filmore student housing

San Francisco is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes and diverse communities in the world. Our off-campus housing gives you the opportunity to experience that first hand.

There are two main locations that Ai student’s dorm at which are “The Fillmore Center” (San Francisco) and the “Westlake Village Apartments” (Daly City). MUNI is one of the public transits in the area that is available for both locations, but BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is only available for students living at the Westlake apartments.

There are coordinators that are available to walk students through the steps of living on your own such as:

Brianne Nunn

Director of Residential Life and Housing
*The Director is responsible for the overall housing program.

Kevin DeMain, M.A.

Location of Apartments

Fillmore- is located in the center of San Francisco and is 15-20 minutes away from the Art Institute. But there is public transportation, which is really convenient and only costs $1.50 for a 90-minute ride/transfer or $45 for a month pass. In addition, you can drive but parking is terrible. You can park around the surroundings of the complex or pay $230 a month for a parking spot.

Westlake- is located in Daly City but is 10-15 minutes walking distance from the BART, which is a 13-minute ride to the Civic Center station, located right next to campus. It costs $2.80 one-way, but you also have the choice of taking MUNI to school, which is still $1.50 but takes 40-minutes to get to school. In addition, like Fillmore there is some surrounding parking for free or pay $45-65 per month for garage space.
