Pennsylvania College of Art & Design offers students a unique opportunity – a learning environment and support system in a community of professional artists who focus on real world experience. Our students are challenged by their peers and by PCA&D's faculty to be the best artist they can be. They thrive in this culture: work hard and have fun. An added bonus is that Lancaster is a great place to live.
The city of Lancaster combines the advantages of a larger city with the comfort and safety of a smaller town – a great urban environment for young adults. With over one hundred galleries, museums, clubs, unique shops, cafes and restaurants, students find that Lancaster city is a great place to live and learn.
The college's Housing Referral Service helps our BFA students with their off-campus housing needs. Click here to read blog posts about the housing process and finding an apartment that suits your needs.
Recently the college announced an exclusive partnership which will provide new housing for incoming freshmen beginning in the Fall 2014. Click here for more information.
Our students take part in a number of professional organizations, student council programs and as city-wide activities to round out their social experiences.
And our students have fun, too. Check out the photo album on PCA&D's Facebook wall from the all-school lunch in February.
