Housing and Parking

Housing, both on-site at the Fine Arts Work Center and in Provincetown, fills up very quickly. To secure housing, please book as early as possible.

On-Site Housing

The Fine Arts Work Center has limited apartments available for students on a first-come, first-served basis. An apartment costs $1,000 for six nights, and payment-in-full is due at registration, based on availability. Information regarding on-site housing availability is provided at the time of registration.

All apartments have a full-sized bed, kitchen, private bath, and wireless internet. Apartments do not, however, have a telephone, television, or air-conditioner (fans are available). Bedding, towels, and linens will be provided, but students should bring their own toiletries. Coin-operated laundry facilities will be available on select evenings for students staying on-site. Please bring quarters and detergent.

Check-in is on Sunday between 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM and check-out is by noon on Saturday. Please note that we cannot accommodate early arrivals, late departures, or requests for a particular apartment.

Please note that smoking is not allowed anywhere on our property, indoors or out. 

Service and Emotional Support Animals

We will accommodate service animals without question and emotional support animals with a document that includes the name of your diagnosed condition(s) and a recommendation for an emotional support animal. It must be written and signed by a licensed mental health professional who can legally practice in your state. The letter must include the practitioner’s license number. An emotional support animal is a type of assistance animal recognized as a “reasonable accommodation” for a person with a disability under the federal Fair Housing Act.”

Otherwise, we must ask you to please leave your pets at home.

FAWC maintains several pet-free units for individuals with allergies or related concerns.
