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.
The Fine Arts Work Center has a limited number of apartments available for students on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost of an apartment is $1,000 for six nights and payment in full is due at time of registration, based upon availability. Information regarding on-site housing availability is provided at 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 4-6 PM and check out is by noon on Saturday. Please note we cannot accommodate early arrivals or late departures, nor can we accommodate requests for a particular apartment.
Please note that smoking is not allowed anywhere on our property, indoors or out, and we ask you to please leave your pets at home. Residents are expected to leave their apartments clean upon departure. A cleaning fee will be charged for apartments that require extra cleaning.
We are so grateful that many local inns, hotels, and B&Bs have partnered with us to make finding housing easier and more affordable for our summer workshop students.
