Student Housing

Our Chicago Community is located in Lansing, Illinois, and is such a large part of the Visible Music College culture and rhythm. Rather than placing students in typical, cinderblock rooms with little or no amenities, our students are housed in residential homes or apartments in the Village of Lansing within walking distance of campus.

Housing is an important role in the life of the student and we believe that living in a small artist community is beneficial to students in their personal and academic success.

What should I expect in my room?

  • Extra-long bunk beds (one in each room)
  • Appliances – Fulled shared kitchen with refrigerator, oven, stovetop, microwave & washing machine.
  • Shared bathroom with shower & toilet.
  • Two students per bedroom.
  • Shared laundry room with washer & dryer.

What else should I know about the Student Studios?

  • Reliable, high-speed internet connection to the school system
  • Extra events and Downtown living perks for Housing Students only

Is there a meal plan?

  • Included in the cost of housing is a student meal plan. Each student will receive a $60 meal card each month.
  • Our hope and desire by providing each student a meal card is that roommates would plan out daily meals together, learning how to spend their funds at the grocery store in an economical way that still focuses on healthy eating.

Do I need a car?

  • We have multiple places for parking including the Visible Campus but because of the location, cars are not needed.
  • It’s also easy to find a ride from someone in the Visible community if necessary.
