Founders Green

Founders Green is specifically designed with the needs of new students to MICA in mind. The sprawling green space and common areas in the heart of the complex make it ideal for meeting new people and interacting with your classmates. Founders Green is home to over 500 students and is less than a five-minute walk from the Main Building. Founders Green consists of the following buildings Latrobe, Spear Hall, Carter Hall, Glace Hall and Leake Hall.

Former students have claimed time and time again that the environment isn't just a community, but instead an interactive "family" of friends. Founders Green continues to provide a community oriented atmosphere where students thrive and learn from one another and develop meaningful friendships that last a lifetime.

Housing is apartment-style. Apartments are three or four bedrooms, accommodating three to four students each. Each apartment also contains a living room, kitchen, and bathroom. The community, designed especially for student artists, is programmed to encourage the exploration of the foundation year and help to foster the overall community amongst its residents.

Leake HallFounders Green is the ideal hall for any resident who prefers a more community-oriented atmosphere. The complex features a secure entrance, study lounges and social lounges completely furnished with tables, chairs, couches, and televisions creating a comfortable social atmosphere. There will also be a late night dining option for students with late classes, as well as a black box performing space and a lecture hall. Studios are available for students who need space to work on their projects.

The complex's main entrance is called Latrobe and includes:

  • 24-hour Desk that is the central point for information and safety & security concerns
  • Mailboxes and vending room that takes cash or MICARDs
  • Lounge & gallery space
  • Small programming space for events

Leake HallThe Founders Green staff works along with student leaders on the MICA campus to provide a dynamic living and learning community of artists. Programs, or educational opportunities, provide a myriad of experiences for a complete education, from teaching life skills, to broadening the minds of students on social issues, to providing a complement to the new student experience. Students will find that living on campus is enriching for their overall learning experience at MICA. Our staff provides a safe and inclusive environment where learning, creating, and growing are things that happen inside our community of amazing resident artists. Staffing for the complex includes two live-in Residential Coordinators, one Graduate Assistant for Residence Life, 14 Residential Advisors, the 24-hour front desk, and the Office of Residence Life & Off-Campus Housing.
