AIC maintains a dormitory capable of accommodating a limited number of both male and female students, with the third floor reserved for females only. The dormitory is connected to the main college building and provides the advantage of living on campus with direct, sheltered access to the classrooms. The College believes that living in residence halls contributes to the personal growth and development of the individualby providing companionship with a wide variety of people with whom students may share interests and learn new ideas, thus creating a sense of community.
The dormitory hosts 60-rooms, a commercial kitchen, cafeteria, student kitchenette, laundry facilities, fitness room, recreation room, terrace, study room, student hall, lounge, showers/bathrooms and prayer hall, and has WIFI access throughout. Monthly rent is $500 for single occupancy and $375 for double occupancy. Interested students should submit the housing application and one-month deposit to the Main Office. Applications are available at the Main Office. Students may apply for residence accommodation by semester or academic year. Depending upon availability, rooms may be rented on a daily, weekly or monthly basis to accommodate the needs of students who require short-term housing.
All dormitory residents are provided with a Rules and Regulations Agreement, which they must sign and abide by. Meal Plans are not offered.
