Whether it’s music, art, food or biking, Detroit has it down. CCS is in the heart of mid-town and living here puts you at the heart of creativity. Become a part of it. Artists and designers, young professionals, local community organizers and entrepreneurs of all backgrounds are creating the next Detroit. Live in the heart of a vibrant and socially minded culture where the opportunity to collaborate with an international community is helping the resurgence of our multifaceted city.

The CCS campus is made up of two unique sites.

Taubman Center Loft-Style Housing

The Taubman Center offers high ceiling, loft-style furnished rooms with one private bath. Each room is approximately 500 square feet and accommodates three to four people.

The Taubman Center is built on the philosophy of community, so just outside the student’s living quarters are workspaces, fitness rooms and lounge areas for students to interact. Each floor also houses a laundry room. Continuing with the theme of community, a full-service dining area is just a few floors below. Students living in the Taubman Center are required to have a meal plan.

Most first-year students are placed in the Taubman Center to foster collaboration with peers in their class, enhancing their overall learning experience.

Common Features

Dining and Meal Plans

We have a few different dining options for our students to enjoy. The Ford Campus is home to the Arts & Crafts Café which features a coffee bar, grab-and-go items, and a grill. A full-service dining facility is located at the Taubman Center. We also provide extensive vending services with customizable meal options provided 24 hours a day on both campus sites.


Meal plan options:
1,450 dining dollars each semester — $1,450 per semester
2,175 dining dollars each semester — $2,175 per semester

Additional Dining Information

If you were to run out of dining dollars, you may also put money (called Flex Dollars account) on your CCS SmART card. Money added outside of the meal plan is refunded at the end of the year.

All students are locked into a meal plan for the academic year starting on move-in day. After move-in day, the size of the meal plan can be switched until the end of the add/drop period at the start of each semester (approximately two weeks after the semester starts). Dates are published in the CCS Academic Calendar. Unused Dining Dollars from the Fall semester will roll over to the Winter semester. Any unused Dining Dollars at the end of the Winter semester are not refunded.

Housing Services

Housing Staff

We have a dedicated and energetic staff ready to assist you during your stay in CCS student housing. The staff consists of 11 resident assistants in the Art Centre Building and 10 resident assistants in the Taubman Center. The resident assistants are experienced students who assist residents and plan programs and activities. In addition to the resident assistants, there are professional staff members who live in each of our housing facilities.

Security in Housing

The security of the residents is of utmost concern. Both the Art Centre Building and the Taubman Center have a 24-hour front desk staffed by security personnel to assist students. The building is locked from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. each day. Residents use their student ID to get into the building and to access the elevator or stairwell. Shuttle service is also provided between the Cultural and New Center locations.

Students with Disabilities

All efforts are made to assist CCS students with disabilities. Assistance in educational matters is provided through the Center for Tutoring and Writing. Other types of assistance for students with physical disabilities are provided through the Office of Student Affairs. Students with a physical and/or learning disability must provide the College with documentation of their disability before any assistance can be provided.


Service from Ford and Taubman campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We also provide shuttle trips to shopping centers that you need to sign up for.
