Returning Residency

Returning Residency

We're pleased to invite our Fellows, Collaborative Residents, Summer Program Faculty and Students, and Alumni of the MassArt/FAWC MFA to participate in the Fine Arts Work Center's Returning Residency Program. The program is a great opportunity to escape energy-sapping routines, recharge creative batteries, and live and work surrounded by other artists and writers.

During these weeks, Work Center apartments are available for rent at a reduced weekly rate (please note partial week rentals are not available). Apartments are lovely and rustic. They include a double bed, private bathroom, and full kitchen with cooking and eating utensils. Apartments do not have phones, televisions, or air conditioners (fans are provided if needed). Residents have access to our computer lab with scanner, printer, and copier. Wireless internet, on-site parking, and coin-operated laundry facilities are available. Visual arts studios are also available for an additional cost. No pets are allowed and smoking is prohibited inside all FAWC buildings, including apartments. 

PLEASE NOTE
Residents must bring their own sheets (size double), towels, and toiletries. 
Check-in is on Monday between 3-5pm and check-out is on Sunday by 12pm. 
We are unable to accommodate early arrivals or late departures. 

Residents are expected to check out on time and to leave the apartment clean.

Payment in full is due at time of registration and residencies are available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

PLEASE NOTE Each week’s residency runs Monday – Saturday nights. If you register for two or more consecutive weeks in different apartments you will need to secure off-site housing for the Sunday night in-between. In other words, you will need to check-out on Sunday by 12pm and then check-in to the new apartment on Monday between 3-5pm.
