Creative Practice Community

The Creative Practice Community is full for the 2020–21 academic year.

What is the Creative Practice Community?

The Creative Practice Community recognizes that creativity is best fostered when ideas, methods and materials can easily be shared. This community is designed for students want to live with others who are interested in any kind of making — fine arts, craft, digital media, product design, architecture, furniture, and landscapes for example. Be a part of a diverse creative group!

This community neighbors the Art + Design Academic Residential Community and has access to the community maker-hacker studio in Kalapuya Ilihi. There are no courses required for participating in the Creative Practice Community and instead allows students to collaborate with others in a variety of majors with similar interests. 

Why should I choose to live in this community?

Residents in this community benefit from access to the maker space studio shared with the Art + Design community as well as peers who are in the College of Design.

Please note that communities can be moved to different residence halls if the size or need of the community changes.
