  • Residence Halls

    On-campus housing is guaranteed for all incoming first-semester students. The college maintains residential facilities that provide housing for approximately 130 students. Our campus offers three residence halls: Guest House, Vineyard Lodge I, and Vineyard Lodge II. Occupancy in all residence halls is either single, double, or triple-occupancy rooms with private or shared bath.

    All rooms are furnished with a desk, chair, dresser, wardrobe or closet, and bed for each student. Each room also comes equipped with one television. All utilities (including air conditioning), cable TV access, limited local phone service, and wireless Internet connection are included. Amenities also include coin-operated laundry and a common area in each building. Each room will have linen and limited housekeeping service provided on a regular basis. All residence halls are non-smoking facilities.

    Resident assistants reside in all three housing facilities to provide supervision, guidance, and activities for residential students. Full-time security is provided by the Office of Safety and Security.

    Guest House

    Located just steps from the Wine Spectator Greystone Restaurant and the Teaching Kitchens, this secured building has 18 rooms featuring double and triple occupancy with private baths, common area, and outdoor patio overlooking the vineyards of the Napa Valley. Although this facility does not have a community kitchen, each room is furnished with a combination refrigerator/microwave unit.

    Vineyard Lodge I

    The Vineyard Lodge I is located approximately 3/4 mile from the main campus (shuttle service is provided). This secured building has 41 rooms featuring primarily single occupancy, all with private baths. It also includes a common area, community kitchen, and outdoor patio with grilling area.

    Vineyard Lodge II

    Located alongside Vineyard Lodge I, this new hall was built in 2009 with 30 rooms featuring primarily double occupancy rooms. It has earned LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, offering CIA at Greystone students the chance to live in—and learn from living in—an environmentally conscious facility. It also includes a common area, community kitchen, outdoor patio, and a fitness room.

    Please note: The fitness room (Vineyard Lodge II) and community kitchens (Vineyard Lodge I & II) are accessible to all students living on campus regardless of their building of residence.

    Telecommunication
    Room-to-room and local telephone service is provided to all resident students. Students are provided their own touch-tone phones (one per room). Long-distance service is not available.

    Housekeeping and Maintenance
    Custodians clean the residence halls, and students are required to keep their own rooms clean and cooperate in keeping hallways and stairwells clean and free of trash. Maintenance will make any necessary repairs in student rooms or in the hallways.

    Parking
    During Orientation, Campus Safety officers will hand out parking permits. All vehicles must be registered. Student parking is permitted in designated areas only. Students who reside in the Guest House may park their vehicles in the main parking lot. Those students who live at the Vineyard Lodges are required to take the shuttle to campus. The shuttle can be paged through short-wave radios located each of the resident halls.
