Want to try a unique Dyson College experience?

Apply today to this year-long, living-learning community in Elm Hall on the Pleasantville Campus!

About the Program

The Dyson Artists in Residence (DAIR) program offers you the chance to join a community of diverse students who live together in a residence hall, explore creativity and the arts through special programming like film nights and poetry readings, build strong friendships with like-minded creative peers, and find a mentor in a committed faculty member who spends time with the community in the residence hall.

You are able to live with other DAIR students in the program or with a student who is not in the program. Once you’ve indicated your interest with the preregistration form, DAIR faculty, Residence Life, and Housing staff will assist you throughout the process.
