Each summer and fall, students from around the world converge on Pilchuck's residential campus to learn, exchange ideas, and discover an incredible artist community. The immersive experience supports a greater sense of community that is integral to the spirit of campus life.

Dormitory Housing is included in course fees and consists of a double-occupancy room with two twin sized beds (bedding provided), desks, storage, and two separate central restrooms for men and women. The dormitory is located less than a five-minute walk uphill.
Cottage Housing is an optional upgrade. Each cottage consists of two double-occupancy rooms with twin sized beds (bedding provided), desks, and storage. The rooms are separated by a bathroom which is shared by the four residents. With more space, greater privacy, and closer proximity to studios, cottage rooms carry an additional fee. Requests may exceed availability, and placement is not guaranteed. When applying, check either “Dormitory” or “Cottage” on the application. If you do not designate a choice, we will assign you to the dormitory. Requests for cottage rooms may exceed availability, and we cannot guarantee placement.
