Thank you for your interest in ArtStreet housing for the 2013-2014 academic year. As part of the Special Interest Housing initiative, ArtStreet residents have contributed invaluable service to their neighbors by providing arts-based educational programming, sponsoring community gatherings, and devoting time and energies to creative philanthropic projects. Your group’s efforts over the next year to enhance the student neighborhoods through similar initiatives will continue to enrich our educational environment and promote our Catholic and Marianist values.
All student groups who wish to live in ArtStreet for the 2013-2014 academic year must fill out one group application. Please know that the quality of your application will affect whether your group will be awarded/able to retain a house.

1. CREATIVE SERVICE PROJECT: Each ArtStreet house is required to conduct an arts-based service project during the 2013-2014 school year designed to promote the arts in our community. Please explain your creative service project idea, and articulate how each of your members will incorporate your interests/skills/activities from question #1 into this project for the ArtStreet, UD campus, or Dayton community. This description should be no more than 250 words and should get to the ‘heartbeat’ of the project’s spirit and why your house should be the one to bring the project to the UD Campus and community.
*Successful projects in the past have been the creation of original art works for local hospitals and special-support housing, lead art programs in schools where the arts have been cut, story- teller, concert series, etc.
2. SMART GOALS: Please list 3 SMART goals that will help you implement and accomplish your service project. Please make sure that one of your goals also addresses how your group will improve/contribute to the neighborhood community as described in the University’s Commitment to Community document.
3. LOCATION: Please indicate your first, second, and third choices for housing location if you are selected to reside at ArtStreet.

There are 5 four-person lofts, 5 six-person townhouses and 1 eight-person townhouse at ArtStreet. Actual availability may vary due to retention of current residents. Groups must be made up of 4, 6, or 8 same-gender juniors and seniors. If a vacancy occurs, you may be required to work with UD Housing and the ArtStreet director to identify an appropriate individual to occupy the empty space.
