The cost of a Watershed residency session is the combined total of the residency fee and the housing fee. To secure space in the summer residency of your choice, please register online and submit a $200 non-refundable deposit, which is applied toward your total costs. Residency participants who wish to be considered for Watershed scholarships or work-exchange positions must submit the separate financial aid application by February 15.

Residents are required to stay on campus during their residency. Artists who register for a summer residency and pay their tuition in full by March 31st receive a $50 discount off their residency fees.
Watershed has several housing choices available on a first-come, first-served basis, including single- and double-occupancy rooms with shared or private baths. Typically, three to five resident artists will share a unisex bathroom. Rooms with shared baths have twin beds; rooms with private baths are furnished with a full sized bed and a twin bed. All rooms have armoires and additional storage for clothing and personal belongings. Watershed provides pillows and blankets, but participating artists bring their own sheets and towels. If you have any special housing concerns, please contact Watershed to discuss your needs.
