DECEMBER 27–31, 2016
All students are responsible for making their own housing and travel arrangements.
Below are suggestions to help begin the travel and accommodation search.
Join the ADF Housing Collective in your search for housing, roommates, etc. This is a Facebook group monitored by the ADF School staff. The group is for registered applicants to connect about housing opportunities during ADF’s summer and winter intensive programs. You must request to be added to the group. You will not automatically be added. Winter Intensive participants will be removed from the group once the intensive has ended.
The following are mostly budget hotels or dormitory style accommodations. Note that rates are usually higher for December 24 – January 2 and accommodations tend to be booked and full very far in advance due to the Rose Bowl Parade, which is a very popular tourist attraction and takes place on the street in front of the ARC Pasadena. We have done our best to correctly present the information about each business; however, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the listings. ADF takes no responsibility for any arrangements made or promised.
We strongly urge students to make reservations as soon as possible to ensure availability.
