The LCAD Residence Hall provides communal living in a small apartment complex. Roommates and units are assigned based on resident needs, shared interests, and other preferences that may encourage an easier transition into a shared living arrangement.

Located at 787 Laguna Canyon Road, the hall accommodates up to 56 students, is only 3/4 of a mile from LCAD’s historic Main Campus and walking distance to downtown Laguna Beach’s shopping, dining, and beachside boardwalk.

Assigned roommates are encouraged to coordinate cleaning, grocery buying/sharing, cooking, decorating, carpooling, and frequency of guests. Living in a residence hall strengthens life skills such as adaptation, transition, and compromise. Residents are expected to maintain the highest level of conduct and mutual respect. Failure to comply with LCAD Residence Life policies will result in removal from the housing program without compensation or refund.

About Me: Hello! I’m Ellen Kenneda, a Junior in Illustration w/ Entertainment Emphasis. My focus is on Character Design and Story and I would love to work for Marvel, a smaller indie company, or freelance until I can focus on my own webcomics and stories. In my first year of being a Resident Advisor, one of the most enjoyable aspects is getting to know the residents! I hope you enjoy it at LCAD as much as I do!
